Repost: Art of The Book – A Gathering of Friends, Saturday, June 8, 2019

The Art of the Book 2018 Exhibition has arrived and is now open at the George Bothwell Library in Regina, SK. CBBAG SASK would like to invite you and your friends to a Show and Share on Saturday June 8th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

We will be meeting at the George Bothwell Library located in the Southland Mall. The day will mostly consist of a Show & Share of all your wonderful books – we’d love to see 3-5 of them, if you’re willing! Feel free to bring along “works-in-progress” too. We’ll each have a designated space to display them in. In the afternoon, the public is invited to join us from 2:00-3:30 for a Guided Tour of the Art of the Book (Martha Cole helped install the show and has some “insider information” she can share!).

Please let me Leann know if you are attending and if you would like to join us all for lunch. We will be making a reservation at a local restaurant and would like to give them numbers so they are ready for us. Please email Leann at:

What a wonderful day to be filled with books, fellowship and sharing. All are welcome. Looking forward to seeing everyone !

It’s a Wrap… By the Book

The past few months have been very exciting in Regina. The Regina Public Library, Central Branch was host to By the Book: CBBAG SASK Works. This show was on display during March and April and was a huge success! There were 15 Saskatchewan book artists showcased and the Melfort Calligraphy Guild. The display was well received and had wonderful comments. WELL DONE EVERYONE!!!

CANCELLED – Blizzard Book Class w/ Kathy Hamre

Good day Everyone,

It is with heavy heart that we need to cancel the Blizzard book workshop this weekend in Davidson. Kathy’s father has passed away and understand that family and friends are most important at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathy and Evanna and their family.

We will rebook for the fall.
