The Bone Folders’ Guild, who got their name from the small tool they use in folding paper to make art, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. The group was founded by bookmaking enthusiasts who shared a passion for literature and paper arts. It first came to life on February 2, 2001, which is James Joyce’s birthday (coincidentally, the favorite author of one of the co-founders). This year, they will throw a show for their anniversary at the Overture Center for the Arts. A variety of paper works will be featured with the theme of “15”. The gallery will host the show until March 5.
You can visit the exhibit’s opening reception at the venue, from 6 to 8 PM. It is free to the public. The group will also host “Make & Take a Book” – an event where the public can learn basic book-making from the Bone Folders’ Guild. This will also take place at the Overture Center in the Wisconsin Studio for free. For more information, visit the Bone Folders’ Guild Facebook page and the Overture Center for the Arts website.
