Books ... beyond words

Had the good fortune last weekend to be able to travel to Bairnsdale for the opening of East Gippsland Art Gallery's Books ... beyond words exhibition. The exhibition (which runs until 4 September) features over eighty artists' books from Australia and overseas. There was a real buzz around the opening and a sense of just how important regional galleries are to their communities.

BAO was well represented in the exhibition with works by Rhonda Ayliffe, Fiona Dempster, Lisa Giles, Helen Malone, Gail Stiffe, Terence Uren, Amanda Watson-Will and Sandra Winkworth (and apologies if I've overlooked anyone). More information on the exhibition can be found here.
