John Frederick Walker

JFW at Ober Gallery May 7-June 5

Posted in art news by JFW on April 17, 2011

The Ober Gallery in Kent, Connecticut will exhibit my mixed-media “Bookworks” from May 7 to June 5, 2011.  It’s my first solo exhibit in five years.

Elephant Folio, 2011. Mixed media

The works on exhibit all derive from actual books, or book fragments, radically altered. “In each case,” Kathryn Boughton wrote in her 2006  Litchfield County Times profile, “what remains becomes an armature for Mr. Walker’s drawing, a process that transforms these objects into original and evocative forms.”
