Description
Twelve artists, nationally known for their creative engagement with the art of the book, were invited to participate in an experiment. Each of the artists was given a copy of the book Wallpaper: A Collection of Modern Prints, and asked to respond to it by exploring and altering its original form and/or content, thus giving it new meaning. This mixed media exhibition will present 2D and 3D work. Expect the outrageous and the gorgeous.

Participating Artists
Phil Barber, Doug Beube, Scott Helmes, Vesna Kittelson, Joyce Lyon, Chip Schilling, Jody Williams, Karen Wirth, Yu-Wen Wu, Sarita Zaleha, Harriet Bart and Jon Neuse.

Wallpaper: A Collection of Modern Prints, by Charlotte Abrahams
Two decades on wallpaper is enjoying a sustained renaissance. There are papers referencing—and sometimes precisely replicating—every historical style from flock and photo-real scenic’s to Chinoiserie and Toile de Jouy…This book is a visual celebration of some of those designs.

Mission Statement
Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art supports the work of mid-career professional artists with high-quality, affordable studios and the engagement of audiences with gallery exhibitions, open studio events, art classes and workshops.
