CBAS Announces Purchase Award

CBAS is very pleased to announce its Purchase Award for 2013, chosen from its annual Bookworks exhibition. This book will be a gift to the collection of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County in memory of Keith Kuhn, former CBAS Chair and Library Services Director.

Selected by judges Amy Bogard (Art Academy of Cincinnati) and Lisa Jameson (Northern Kentucky University) was Paul's Blues by Lou Kroner. The artist's statement describes the work as follows: Inspired by the work of artist Dolph Smith, this book of old blue prints seemed to have only one presentation possibility—as part of an architectural structure. This project includes the tools and blueprints of my father-in-law, Paul Stryker, teacher and architect.

Be sure to plan a visit to Bookworks 14, now on view in the Library Atrium, June 11 through August 18, where you can see Paul's Blues, one of forty creative entries this year. And mark your calendar for 3 related events: 2 Sunday walk-throughs with book artists at 2 p.m. on June 23 and August 11; a free journal making workshop on Saturday, August 3, 2-5 p.m.

Note: The Library's fine collection of artists' books can be accessed anytime by visiting the Joseph S. Stern, Jr. Cincinnati Room on the third floor during regular business hours. The collection contains the best of local, regional, national and international work.
