The pairing of exquisite and clever handmade books with high quality professional nature photography has become an early spring tradition at the Art Center, allowing the viewers to enjoy both 3-D works of art as well as 2-D works in one outstanding collection. Most of the books can be purchased from the artists; inquiries about purchasing the framed and matted photos may also be made throughout the exhibit and will be passed on to the photographers.

The handmade book exhibit has been organized by FCAC art instructor and board member Bob Meadows and Book Guild member Cheryl Prose. The photography exhibit has been made possible through the efforts of FCAC Board member Dr. Holland Rowe. For more information, contact the Art Center staff at (865)357-2787.
