Indigene: Artist Monograph Release Reception and Presentation

An artist monograph release reception and presentation
by Rula Jones

Indigene features 36 pages of interdisciplinary art and writing. Please RSVP here.

Frederick Book Arts Center, providing opportunities to explore, celebrate and engage in the craft and techniques associated with the Art of the Book, announces Indigene, an artist monograph release of a multimedia art book by contemporary artist Rula Jones.

Rula Jones, states, “Indigene is a project that has allowed me to combine my love and practice of both art and writing into a single format. The book idea was inspired by a great deal of memoir writers and artist book makers that have come before me including Kurt Vonnegut’s A Man Without a Country,  the journals of artist Anne Truitt, William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience, and Jenny Holtzer.”

Johnny Carrera, Executive Director of FBAC says, “The Frederick Book Arts Center is excited to have Rula Jones’s presentation which we hope will begin a series of book releases and talks given by members of our community who have been creating artists books with grants from the Frederick Arts Council in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Arts. Rula’s book pushes the boundaries of book beyond the pages into the digital realm in an altogether new and exciting fashion. I can’t wait to see her presentation!”

FBAC will sell copies of the book while a reception with a brief presentation will be held on Sunday, July 23rd at 3 pm. Refreshments served. Free Parking on the street.
