From Friday 26th May 2017 10:00 to Saturday 27th May 2017 18:00
Alongside more than 60 artists and printmakers, ttp organisers have revealed that international artist Anna Yevtukh, now based in the UK, will be creating the centre piece for the fair. Yevtukh plans to make a leather bound ‘Street of Books’ which will represent the artist’s interpretation of the quote ‘There's no place like home’. In making the unique book sculpture, Yevtukh will explore ideas of belonging, habitation and environment.
The reputable event has also attracted multi-talented Barbara Beisinghoff from Germany who makes etchings, artists’ books, handmade paper and installations. She is a well-known artist who has exhibited her work in China, Peru, Israel, Egypt, Korea, Italy and the United States of America.
Founder and Director of turn the page, Jules Allen, said: “Since I established turn the page six years ago, it has grown into one of the top book art fairs in the UK and is highly regarded internationally. We’re extremely excited this year to be exhibiting Barbara Beisinghoff’s work whose career spans more than five decades. We pride ourselves in bringing the ‘cream of the book art world’ to this region for all ages to enjoy and be inspired by.”
