Abecedarian Gallery books Katie Taft's Action Figures for the afternoon
Heather Doyle-Maier, "Her (un) Doing."
Looking to start a new chapter? Head to Alicia Bailey's Abecedarian Gallery, a tiny, meticulously curated book-art gallery on Santa Fe Drive, for the last day of the Artists Book Cornucopia III exhibition. And it's going out in style, with a special edition of Westword MasterMind Katie Taft's Action Figures artist discussion series, featuring three Colorado contributors from the group show.
Sammy Seung-min Lee and JongKu Kim, "Fe-O."
Action Figures is usually at home across town at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Lakewood, so it's a rare occasion to catch Taft at work in the Art District on Santa Fe. And Taft, a deft moderator, should draw out some fascinating facts about the mysterious world of book art -- where you don't always flip through pages or get a linear story -- right from the artists' mouths.
Denverites Heather Doyle-Maier and Sammy Seung-min Lee and Christine Martell of Fort Collins will chat with Taft on Saturday at 4 p.m., making this last viewing day of the complex exhibit all the more rich.
Christine Martell, "Chapter 5."
Come early and take it all in, before Taft and friends close the show; for more information visit Abecedarian online.
