About the Event

We are going back to our pre-pandemic, in person silent auction. Come to Central School Project August 26th to view the pieces, have a beverage, pick your favorites and outbid your competitors! This event is free to all and we look forward to seeing you there. Artists: Click on the Call to Artists button for a PDF file with instructions. If you're curious what an "altered book" is this is a description from Wikipedia: 

"An altered book is a form of mixed media artwork that changes a book from its original form into a different form, altering its appearance and/or meaning.

An altered book artist takes a book (old, new, recycled or multiple) and modifies it in any of  various ways, such as cutting, tearing or folding, or embedding objects.[1]

Altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture. Antique or Victorian art is frequently used. Altered books are shown and sold in art galleries and on the Internet.

Recycling old books and using them as art journals has also become popular with some art bloggers and proponents of upcycling."
