More than 25 artists will be featured, with works in a variety of media, including drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, print, sculpture and video. Everyone wears a mask, whether literally or figurative. What are we trying to hide or reveal? Ancient man used the altered human form to represent the mysteries of his world.

Be part of the event: wear black and/or white!

Len Cowgill places his drawings in boxes and bottles and surrounds them with writing and found objects. “My work is about containment. I explore some facet of the human condition in a drawing and box it up or put it in a bottle. I create a stage for the drawings and invite the audience to get close, look at and touch it. It becomes an experience shared, a story that’s been told; perhaps not the story I had in mind.”

Reception: Friday, July 22, 2011

Philadelphia Artists’ Books Travel to Venice
Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers Members’ Exhibition


Lesley Mitchell’s At the Milonga unfolds in myriad ways to reveal a Buenos Aires dance hall with musicians and dancers, and as the wings of the book open and the folds simultaneously tumble towards the viewer, the perspective brings the heads of joyful or serious participants right up to my face. Surely, I am the dancer next to the couple in front. I feel their breath. I hear the music...
