Ah Haa School for the Arts

The Ah Haa School’s American Academy of Bookbinding presents “Open Set,” a traveling exhibition of fine bookbindings. The American Academy of Bookbinding, located in the Old Stone Building at 117 N. Willow St., hosts a triennial exhibition and competition of fine design bindings. For 2020, the exhibition opened in New York City on February 19, and will travel to San Francisco, Salt Lake City and Austin over the next year.

The exhibition features 100 books from some of the best binders in the world. A jury selected the best entries from a field of over 140 books, with foreign entries comprising over half the selected books. Prizes were awarded to the top three books in two categories—an “open” category, where artists could choose their own book to bind, and the “set” category, where artists bound “Happy Abstract, A letter from William Blake.”

The exhibition will not be coming to Telluride, so The Ah Haa School is offering a glimpse at the books through an online catalog instead.

Gallery 81435 continues with “The Unknown Zone,” an exhibition by local artist Brooke Einbender.

Einbender’s work blends several practices including painting, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, projection, and video, to form altogether an “Unknown Zone” of art. She is a leading pioneer in the exploration of Virtual Reality, establishing new frontiers at the intersection of art and technology in the context of its impact on human consciousness. Einbender creates mind-bending experiences and paintings designed to transport the viewer to different inter-spatial dimensions.

Einbender’s process involves translating and trans-muting her oil paintings into Virtual Reality. She seeks to constantly dissect, replicate, and layer parts of her oil paintings to create new “material” as a basis for future 3D digital works. Einbender’s originals evolves into soulful counterparts to a virtual plane of existence, taking on a new digital identity.

Telluride Arts’ HQ Gallery continues with “Layers,” an exhibit featuring artwork by two local artists: Brandon Berkel and Molly Perrault through April 2020. The exhibit explores two different approaches to the medium of collage.

For Brandon Berkel, the act of creating is about guiding his imagination from internal to external places. With a background in writing, Berkel continues to tell stories through mixed-media collages, inventing and arranging surreal landscapes that merge reality and fantasy. His current body of work is deeply inspired by the epic scenery of the San Juan Mountains.

Also inspired by mountainous landscapes, Perrault seeks to create the illusion of painting without paint. Using tiny paper shards of found colors and textures carefully cut from magazines, she re-constructs places that have been a source of inspiration, adventure, and comfort. Perrault’s detail-oriented process is a way to subvert the artificial colors, extravagance, and all too pristine page layouts of mainstream print media back, returning paper back its source, trees within a landscape.

Telluride Gallery of Fine Art 

Telluride Gallery continues a group exhibition featuring eight artists: Tony Berlant, LeAna Clifton, Nicole Finger, Frank Gaard, Krista Harris, Victoria Huckins, Kristin Beinner James and Jennifer Wolf.

Durango-based abstract painter Krista Harris has her newest diptych painting, “Two Birds, One Stone,” featured in the exhibition.

Stay tuned to Telluride Gallery’s social media outlets for studio tours, process demos, artist and jeweler instagram takeovers, digital viewing rooms and more during their closure.

Once More With Feeling, Krista Harris.
