Creative Growth invites you to uncover the pages and folds of Recto Verso, an exhibition centered around the artist book.
When bound in a sequence, the psychedelic tapestries of Rickie Algarva and the infinite variations of Aurie Ramirez' fantasy figures take on unexpected narrative. Artists John Martin and Dan Miller react to and augment found books and magazines, while Laura Jo Pierce creates auto-biographical vignettes of text and abstraction.
After taking in these works and more, kick back in the gallery's "reading room" and thumb through Gerone Spruill's much anticipated Chocolate City of Oakland comic and other newly penned titles by the artists at Creative Growth.
Gallery Manager, Catherine Nguyen will present an exhibition walk-through on Thursday, September 19, at 11:30AM, along with a ‘reading circle’ with participating artists/authors.
