7 libraries in west Fife; June 2010 – June 2011
After a short spell in St Andrews for a ‘re-fit’, the Craft and Information Pods are back out on tour with a new display. As they will spend the next 12 months in a selection of west Fife libraries (details below), it seemed appropriate to fill them with artworks relating in some way to books.
On display is work by Rachel Hazell, Phiona Richards, and Alix Swan who all are influenced by books in their work, but in different ways. The accompanying Information Pod shows a continuous playing slide show of images about the 3 artists; there are samples of materials by Phiona Richards and Alix Swan; and a simple DIY guide to making your own book by Rachel Hazell.
