The preview for The Sunderland Book Project is planned for Thursday 1st September 6-8pm at Arts Centre Washington. Showing alongside work by participants & contributors to the project, will be a series of book work from Beijing, last shown in the North East at 25sg (25 Stratford Grove).
Aswell as bookwork on display, a select group of Sunderland based photographers have been asked to submit work to the exhibition. The work explores the coastal environment, industrial heritage, leisure industry and culture of the city.
Lastly, artist’s books have long been an addition to my practice and often accompany self directed projects, exhibitions or Public Commissions in some form or another, whether in glass, installation or a traditional bound book. This exhibition provides the opportunity to bring this work together, in a coherent display. The work inter-connects through the printmaking technique. The process permits the cross-over of ideas and techniques in reproduction allow infinite possibilities. Theresa Easton
