Township library hosting Inside Out art exhibit
Throughout the month of February, Bloomfield Township Public Library is hosting “Inside Out” – an exhibit presenting a sampling of art in published form.
According to the library, the presentation offers a spectrum of styles and techniques ranging from high-tech offset printing to the humble rubberstamp.
Creators with work in the exhibition include superstars like Andy Warhol to pseudonymous and lesser-known Xerox artists and zine makers from all over the globe. Visitors will find nearly 100 printed items including magazines, portfolios, artists’ books, artistamps, risographic zines, postcards and lovingly gathered loose leaf anthologies of multiple originals. The exhibit is about communication, exploration, and sharing offered in tangible, accessible and portable forms. The exhibit covers a 50-year history of independent, wildly varied, and inspiring art.
The show is part of the personal collection of Bloomfield Township resident Charlton Burch in conjunction with his editorship of Lightworks Magazine, a Michigan visual arts publication which began in 1974.
