West Berkshire Museum presents Cover to Cover during May 2017, an exhibition of the sketchbook exchange project between 30 Open Studios artists.
Artists of various disciplines worked to themes of their choice, to name a few: Memory, Silhouettes, Boundaries, Coast, Storytelling, Vessels, Transformation, Colour.
Each artist was given a second hand book on their theme to use as a “sketchbook” to work on by pasting, cutting, painting, drawing, in short, transforming it. After starting their books, artists within a group of six, exchanged books and worked on the other themes within the group, thus, learning from each other and enriching their thought process.
Come and see the result of this innovative collaborative project, and browse calmly through all the participating sketchbooks on display. Enjoy the richness of exploration and inspiration created by the artists.
