Open Set Exhibition ReceptionThursday, January 18, 2018, 6 – 8pm
Lang Ingalls, exhibition coordinator for OPEN • SET, will give a gallery talk during the closing reception for this traveling exhibition from the American Academy of Bookbinding. Select works from the show will be out of the cases for closer viewing during the talk.
A 2009 graduate of AAB’s Fine Binding program, Lang Ingalls works as a studio design binder. In recent years, she has developed an additional passion: sharing her appreciation and respect for the artistry of binding as a collector, and regularly exhibiting books. She strives to educate the uninitiated and illuminate new understanding for those with prior exposure to the art form. Although an AAB collaborative effort, OPEN • SET comes to you as a direct result of Lang’s dedication and enthusiasm
The exhibition is available for free and public view until January 19th.
The exhibition is intended to be a recognition of the beauty of the craft and a commitment to the public toward a better understanding of this art form. The exhibition will showcase 50 books and will recognize excellence in craftsmanship and design concept interpretation. Each venue may offer an Opening Reception as well as a People’s Choice Award, encouraging viewers to cast their vote for the binding they find most intriguing in both the OPEN and the SET categories.
