The 2021 annual members’ book arts exhibit has closed. It was memorably wonderful-rich with ideas, color and imagery. We on the exhibit team want to thank all who participated and all who came to see it. We needed this refreshment of vision that you all provided. Both artists and viewers received a big shot of energy from the event. Thank you, everyone!
