Mutilated/Cultivated Environments
June 29, 2006 - September 16, 2006

Artist Members Annual Exhibition, organized by Carol Barton, Artist and Alexander Campos, CBA Executive Director.

organized by  Carol  Barton
 Alexander  Campos

This exhibition approaches the subject matter of landscape and other related environment in an inclusive and diverse manner from sculpture forms to traditional letterpress books and prints. The goal of this exhibition is demonstrate the conceptual presentation of topography in book arts rather than the traditional illustrative manner. Many of the works are considered altered books that were carved into 3-dimensional landscapes while other artists use typography and/or mix-media to suggest terrain.
