Book of the Month Volumne XI: Escalante Canyon - by Jamie Ash

Book of the Month Volumne XI: Escalante Canyon - by Jamie Ash
March 10 - April 30, 2015
Location: Taos Community Auditorium Encore Gallery

The Book of the Month is collaboration between the Taos Center for the Arts and the Taos Book Arts Group. Each month a new work of art is on display in the Encore Gallery. Artists in the Book Art Group experiment with a wide range of readily available materials and simple techniques to develop creative narratives. Sometimes they bear little resemblance to the codex book form that is most familiar to all of us, yet they share with all books sequence and narrative.

Jamie Ash's works rarely resemble what one would call a book. She constructs sculptural forms which act as a backdrop for her prose poems. In "Escalante Canyons", Jamie displays deeply textured and richly colored rigid pages in the shapes of silhouetted canyon walls. She arranges them to reference one of the canyons in the Escalante National Monument in southwest Utah. On each of these rigid pages, fragments of text float which speak to her experience of this powerful landscape.

Jamie has taught book arts at the Harwood Museum of Art and privately in Taos and San Francisco. Her work has been shown in Taos, in Santa Fe, at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and in San Diego at the Giesel Library. Her pieces are included in Lark Books "500 Handmade Books, Volume II". She has lived in Taos for 30 years and had developed a business importing
pigments and using them to color plaster in the construction field.

The Taos Book Arts Group, in existence since 2005, gathers on the third Tuesday of each month in the Conference Room at the Millicent Rogers Museum to share their work, learn new techniques from one another and exhibit their work. Members of the Group have a wide-range of artistic interests, including printmaking, drawing, photography, fiber arts, poetry and sculpture. There are no dues, few rules and meetings offer a nurturing and supportive environment to anyone who would like to join or just attend a meeting.

For further information please contact Carol Farmer at 575-751-3091 or Sara Jean Gray at 575-776-3000.
