Bookish Press Release:
Gallery on the Greens and the management of Market Mall are pleased to announce Bookish, an exhibition of work by Cathryn Miller of Byopia Press. The works on display cover the range of Miller’s oeuvre from altered book sculptures to miniature books. There will be some old favourites in new forms and several completely new works.
As an added bonus for the month of November, Miller’s installation piece The Persistence of Hope will be on display at Market Mall in the space between Smitty’s and The Children’s Museum. The work takes the form of a meditation labyrinth made of tens of thousands of paper stars, each with a wish hand-written inside it. Miller has been collecting wishes and folding stars for almost two and a half years to create this piece. She will be in attendance to show the work and teach interested individuals how to fold their own wishing stars from 2 to 4 on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons throughout the month.
Miller has been working in the book arts for twenty years and making artist’s books since 2004. Her works are held in public and private collections around the world. Paper and book works from Byopia Press have been shown in more than sixty exhibitions: local, national, and international. Miller has twice won the Clara Baldwin Award for best Functional/Production Work at Dimensions, the biennial juried exhibition of the Saskatchewan Craft Council. She has also won a Merit Award, and the Jane Turnbull Evans Award for Innovation. When she won the Premier’s Prize For The Outstanding Entry in 2011 she became the only individual ever to receive this award for work in two different media. She won the Premier’s Prize for a third time in 2015.
Bookish will be on view from November 1 to December 31, 2016 during Market Mall hours: Monday, Tuesday, Saturday – 9:30 am – 6 pm
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – 9:30 am – 9 pm
Sunday & Statutory Holidays – 11 am – 5 pm
