Alternate Selections

Alternate Selections was a retrospective of sorts, a mixture of portions of several bodies of work. I had always wanted to install my odd bookworks in a functioning library, so when I was invited to exhibit in the Columbia College Library in 2007, I immensely pleased at their enthusiastic cooperation in allowing me to move away from the usual exhibition space into the library itself.  I’m grateful to the Library for the experience; my sole regret was that it wasn’t possible to continue the installation into the stacks.

My apologies for the lower-resolution images; they are all I have. More photos are on view here. 

Alternate Selection was created with the support of a lovely volunteer installation and loading crew: Jessica Hannah, Ken Gerleve, Drew Luan Mattot, Jean Bevier, Stephen DeSantis, and Larry Oberc and all the Library Folks.
