BOOKS & BEADS
October 23 – December 18, 2020
The Art Base is proud to present “Books & Beads”, an exhibition by artist Kathy Honea. Honea’s exhibition is a bold and humorous mashup of meticulously assembled items from hand bound books to a slew of beaded objects ranging from mannequins to oversized dice dangling from the ceiling. Both the books and the beaded objects share an incredible attention to detail,, making every inch of her art worthy of inspection. This quirky and light exhibition delves into an often unseen form of beaded objects and true mastery of art book making that is both fine art and deeply campy.
Honea has been a resident of the Roaring Fork Valley since 1971. She creates work in a home studio set-up for many mediums as she often finds herself wanting to experiment in art making. Honea has been beading for over 35 years. This show, “Books & Beads” is two years in the making.
These works are for sale. If you would like more information, please visit our online gallery or contact Lissa at email@example.com.
