An “altered book” is any type of book that has been formed into a piece of art by either deconstructing or adding to it. Last year’s show yielded 48 entrants.
The projects will be put on display for the First Friday Art Walk at 5 p.m. Friday in the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium foyer. Pieces will be kept on display until March 31.
Entries must be able to fit through the door of the auditorium and attendants of the show will have the opportunity to take part in a people’s choice award.
A panel of judges will award prizes in four categories: recycled wisdom, art for book’s sake, ingenious knowledge and promising wisdom, a category for entrants under the age of 18. Much like last year’s event, prizes will include gift certificates to local businesses.
After a successful turnout last year, KAC Director Katie Oliver said the number of projects has significantly dropped this year to 28 entries but what has been entered is impressive, with new and familiar faces gracing this year’s gallery.
“The quality of work we have received has been spectacular,” Oliver said. “Some of the folks who participated last year submitted new entries with entirely new ideas.”
