Yesterday Oola and I took BART to San Francisco to help install a show of handmade books from the Pacific Center for the Book Arts right there in Civic Center, in the Public Library. There was plenty of unpacking, lip smacking, list checking, and a little bit of worry that there wouldn’t be enough room for all 120 pieces.
I pulled a lot of guard duty, and Oola had the heavy responsibility of the bathroom key for a while. But….
There was plenty of sharing and caring,
and a few situational encounters.
There were book installations big and small.
Just when we feared that there really wasn’t enough display space for all the work, Andrea – the Library’s guardian angel – produced more cabinets and tables.
When Oola and I finally limped home there was still more work to do on the show. But all will be ready for the grand reception/opening this Saturday. Come by and enjoy! This won’t happen again until 2017!
The show will be open until Sept. 6.
Reception: June 21, 2 – 4PM
