Altered Books Artists Host Reception
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Members of the Artists Local 101 are hosting a reception for their altered books exhibit from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 2, in the Gallery of the Pinckney Center for the Arts on the Central Oregon Community College Bend campus. Artists Local 101 is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to promoting alternative and contemporary art in Central Oregon.

The reception will include performances by members of the Magic Circle Dance Theater and writers from the High Desert Journal. Performers will include dancers Joann Miller-Watts, Amanda Blockley, Jan McClure-McDonald, Natashya Hays, Pam Talley, Kimberlee Lear. Writers Katrina Hays, Kake Huck, Susan Badger Jones, Anchen Texter, Elizabeth Quinn and Ellen Santasiero will read from their own works.

The exhibit of altered books continues through Friday, Nov. 17. Altered books are made from any book that is in bad condition or about to be discarded for another reason. The artist alters it with collage, embellishment, paint, cutting, and removing or adding pages. Some of the books in the show are entirely constructed by the artists using parts of books, fabric, metal and then decorated. There will be books available for members of the public to take home to create their own altered book and return to the exhibit.

The Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and during evening events in the Pinckney Center. For information, contact Judy Hoiness at 383-7701, Ext. 2114.

Anyone wishing to attend this event who has special needs resulting from a physical disability should contact Gene Zinkgraf, ADA coordinator, at least three days in advance of the event. He can be reached at 383-7775 or through the college’s TTY number, 383-7708.
