Seductive Alchemy: Books by Artists (Texas Woman’s University)

Curated by Ruth Rogers / Curator of Special Collections / Wellesley College "In this exhibition, I have arranged the works in thematic 'families' as a way of emphasizing how shared creative inspiration can lead to such enormously varied expression in the finished piece. Like different pitches in a chorus, they enhance each other's voice by being near one another. I have sought to choose books that are a balanced orchestration of all their elements, communicating on many levels - from nuanced color to unexpected touch to layered or visual text. Take time to let them unfold slowly, and read them not only with your eyes, but with your esprit, and all of your senses."
