Joomchi: Practicing Gratitude with Ania Gilmore
in Sacred Valley, Peru


October 23-25, 2017

Valle Sagrado-Urubamba-Cusco

Joomchi is a traditional Korean technique of felting Mulberry fibers (Hanji) that creates strong, textural and painterly surfaces by layering and agitating Hanji with water. Release your creativity and immerse yourself in a 3 day hands-on Joomchi workshop and learn its history, practice and role in Korean society. Ania will share how she alters the properties of fibers to create a range of papers from smooth leather-like to strong textural pieces and its applications in contemporary art practices. We will create a wall hanging and personal jewelry piece. Joomchi can be incorporated in 2-D & 3D form into surface design, collage, drawing, wearable art, and serve as a functional or fine art sculptural object.

Reception: Friday. October 6, 5-8 PM

'WORDplay' features art inspired by text. As you will see, some artists have a way with words. For some, a book, poem or newspaper article inspires their work. For others, text becomes an integral part of the image, while still others engage us with art that references a play on words.

5th Annual International Juried Exhibit: Art of the Book

Rochester Public Library
115 South Avenue

Judges: Rachael Gootnick, Nancy Bernardo

I am very happy to share a great news that my book Knowledge Inc. has been awarded 1st place in the Altered Book category of the 5th Annual International Juried Exhibit: Art of the Book 2015 in Rochester Public Library, Rochester, NY.

Artist Books are...
works of art realized in the form of a book. They are often published in small editions, though sometimes they are produced as one-of-a-kind objects referred to as ‘unique.’ Artist Books have employed a wide range of forms, including scrolls, fold-outs, concertinas, or loose items contained in a box as well as bound printed sheets. Artists have been active in printing and book production for centuries, but the artist book is primarily a late 20th century art form.

Altered Books are...
any book, old or new, that has been recycled by creative means into a work of art. They can be rebound, painted, cut, burned, folded, added to, collaged in, gold-leafed, rubber stamped, drilled or otherwise adorned…and yes, it is legal.

The World for Our Children: Artists’ Reinterpretations of the 1934 Britannica Junior

October 14, 2015 – February 28, 2016
Members Only Reception: Saturday, January 9, 2016 6-8pm

Danforth Art Museum
123 Union Avenue
Framingham, MA 01702

The first edition of the Britannica Junior was published in 1934, in response to a growing interest for encyclopedias designed specifically with children in mind. Often heavily illustrated, encyclopedias intended for younger audiences sought to teach through both text and image. Britannica Junior was not the first of its kind, for a number of popular children’s encyclopedias were published earlier in the twentieth century, but it was a welcome addition to the genre. We are pleased to have these reinterpretations of the 1934 Britannica Junior on view, as each work offers a nuanced view of the book as art, visually and intellectually. These works push the Britannica Junior beyond its original intent and invite the viewer to consider it as both a transmitter of information and an art object.

3.0 of The Book as Art emphasizes the art form that can be a delight to the eye, a pleasure to the hand, and made tangible in forms that introduce us not only to new interpretations of an ancient concept but also to questions and ideas on 21st century form and format. This is an exhibition that has been described by critics as, "wildly eclectic" and finding ". . . new and often startling ways to reimagine not just the physical format of a book but also the ideological essence of the content." (ArtsATL, “Year in Review,” Dec. 31, 2014); approaching "sheer aesthetic magic"

International Joomchi & Beyond Art Exhibition "Traditional & Transformational"

May 8 – August 21, 2015
Opening Reception: May 8 from 6-8pm

Skylight & Heritage Gallery
New Bedford Art Museum
608 Pleasant St., New Bedford, MA 02740

Curator: Jiyoung Chung

In this international paper exhibition, New Bedford’s rich fiber history intersects with the Korean tradition of Joomchi and truly is a crossroads where East meets West. Contemporary artists from USA, Korea, Australia, Poland, China, and Netherlands working in Joomchi are pushing the envelope of this very traditional art form.

Moving beyond functionality, they are exploring the textural qualities, the expressive coloring that can be achieved, with the unique qualities of the material created by the transformation of paper through the Joomchi process. Add in a diverse group of artists drawn from different cultures and continents, and the show offers an informative and encompassing look at Joomchi today. Traditional & Transformational investigates the varied directions and perspectives being pursued in fiber today. Chung’s choice of artists initiates an interesting conversation for viewers around the theme of how ancient traditions can inspire and inform new works.

Opening reception, Saturday, December 6, 4-6pm

This exhibition of individual and collaborative artists’ books by Ann Forbush, Ania Gilmore, and Annie Zeybekoglu chronicles the journey and intersection of a shared artistic vision. Each of the three artists’ individual works were selected by the other two responding to a shared aesthetic, a common curiosity, or an engagement with materials. Collaborative works evolved naturally from this process, and are expressions that celebrate both solo voices and harmonic exchange, creating balance and growth provoking conversations.

February 17 - March 22, 2014

Women in the Arts is an annual exhibition event which coincides with International Women’s Day (March 8) to highlight the value of female artists’ contribution to the cultural heritage of Australia. Previous years have allowed artists to respond to themes such as 100th year of International Women’s Day, The Bag: Object or Obsession and States of Play: Contemporary Australian Women in Regional Arts Practice. Plans are currently underway for the 2014 event which will see a new twist on this celebratory exhibition to include regional, national and international artists.

Art of the Book

October 25, 2013 - January 5, 2014
Artists' Reception: November 1, 6-9 pm

The book is an enduring symbol of knowledge and freedom, two basic components of all public libraries in the world. For centuries, books have played a significant role in world history, recording not only the history itself, but also inciting history-making events and keeping people informed of what transpires in the world around them. Books can be many things, from simple blocks of text bound together, to lushly illustrated stories, to handsomely bound and printed volumes. They can be well-thumbed paperbacks; dog-eared, much-loved hardcovers; or delivered wirelessly to an 8-inch screen. Books can be read and savored alone and in silence, or they can be cherished and read aloud. In all their forms, books are magical things, and the 'Art of the Book' is intended to showcase all that magic.

4th Sheffield International Artist's Book Prize


October 5 – November 30, 2013

The aim of the Prize is to improve and develop the profile of artist’s books and to create opportunities for display and dissemination. Visitors to the exhibition are asked to vote for their favorite entry and this determines the Exhibition Prize winner and makes the event unique in that it is as much about the viewing, looking at and handling of the books as about their making.

Resonance: books in time


June 24 – August 26, 2013

This exhibition of individual and collaborative artists’ books by Ann Forbush, Ania Gilmore, and Annie Zeybekoglu chronicles the journey and intersection of a shared artistic vision. Each of the three artists’ individual works were selected by the other two responding to a shared aesthetic, a common curiosity, or an engagement with materials. Collaborative works evolved naturally from this process, and are expressions that celebrate both solo voices and harmonic exchange, creating balance and growth provoking conversations.
