The "Alternet" as part of "Artists in the Archives: A Collection of Card-Catalogs" is on display at Asheville BookWorks in Asheville, NC August through September. Carla Rae Johnson, who organized both projects, will be presenting at the opening reception tonight from 6-8pm.
Artists in the Archives:
A Collection of Card Catalogs

November 23,2013 – January 31,2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 23 12-4pm
Three artists, working separately, transform library card catalogs into an art form. Each artist envisions the catalogs’ potential in a different way.
Book Marks by Barbara Page: One artist; one card catalog.
The Alternet by Carla Rae Johnson: over 70 artists; one card catalog. What does an artist do with a fifty drawer card catalog? Artist Carla Rae Johnson has filled one with over fourteen thousand works of art! More than seventy artists participated in The Alternet, creating three hundred drawings, photos, collages, or writings on three inch by five inch cards. Browse through The Alternet card catalog and make amazing discoveries in every drawer. It’s like Facebook for your fingers! www.facebook.com/thealternet
The Call to Everyone by JoAnne Wilcox: Everyone, even YOU: one card catalog.

Hoping that the traditional "salonistas" of Peekskill's Artist District will attend. Also, would love to have former and current WCC drawing students attend. Would be so great to have your input for this program!
