UPDATE: The tour is to start at 2 pm on Sunday, June 4. Please enter at the East Zamoiski Entrance, with the neon Baltimore Museum of Art sign. Morgan Dowty of the department of Prints, Drawings and Photographs will meet us in the lobby.
We have arranged for a Curator’s tour of Off the Shelf: Modern & Contemporary Artists’ Books at the Baltimore Museum of Art. This lovely exhibition, recently reviewed in the national Guild’s new blog by new Potomac resident Shannon Kerner, was also facilitated by Chair Vicky Lee. A quick preview of the exhibit revealed a heavy focus on illustrated books and there is an amazing variety of printmaking methods and exploration of structures, with some greatest hits, and modern and contemporary works.
