Exhibition Theme: The Legacy of Lucy Maud Montgomery
Through book artistry and related book arts, show us how Lucy Maud Montgomery (as a person or through her literary works) has influenced you. What are your memories of her as a child? Or, as you have learned more about her, what are your adult views? This exhibition is about the respect and admiration for Lucy Maud Montgomery expressed through the various forms of book artistry. It is a love letter to her.
Perhaps you only know Anne of Green Gables. You can craft your memories of that story, or you can design a binding for it. Lucy Maud was ahead of her time when it came to speaking out on the human condition. Some of this was cleverly portrayed in her novels, but a lot was also penned in her journals and diaries. You could present your impression of those themes through your work. (See Submission Ideas for other ideas)
Lucy Maud Montgomery loved books and especially the written word. As bookbinders and book artists, this makes us kindred spirits with her. Using the words spoken by L.M. Montgomery’s fictional character, Anne Shirley, this exhibition offers lots of “scope for the imagination”!
Fine binders, book artists, box makers, paper makers, paper decorators, letterpress printers, calligraphers, chine collé, and digital collage artists.
