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!

The "Alternet" goes on the road! With the "Alternet" are "Call to Everyone" a cell-phone photo interactive collection organized by JoAnne Wilcox, and "BookMarks" a collection of personal reflections on books read by Barbara Page. "Artists in the Arcives" will be traveling to libraries in the Northeast for two or three years. We hope you can come to see an amazing collection of cards that honor creativity, collective knowledge and vision. We will keep you posted on where and when you can visit the exhibition.
