Book Arts & More

On Saturday, January 27, check out at Central Features an exhibition of experimental artist-made books that prioritizes conceptual book forms, non-traditional materials, collaborative or interdisciplinary projects, and unconventional approaches to narrative, storytelling, and documentation. Boundless also includes an art zine selection curated by Marya Errin Jones.

Vicki Bolen is a printmaker, paper artist, bookbinder, and
origami artist. After many years her work naturally evolved beyond origami to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and monoprints. In 2006 I started collaborating on book arts with my life partner
Richard Wolfson, who had begun writing after the death of his wife JoAnn, in 2004. Many of his poems come from dreams and shamanic journeys.

Here is an example of one of Vicki’s handmade books.

The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility


Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
