Collecting Series Edition 1: Art Books

We’re starting a new panel discussion series, the Collecting Series.

In this series, we’re bringing artists and arts professionals together to explore two concepts:

  1. Art should be accessible to everyone and enjoyed by everyone
  2. Artists should be fairly compensated for their work. 

Delve into the idea of “collecting” different forms of art with us at BCA throughout the year, starting with this First Edition on Collecting Art Books. As always, BCA members get the first invite and updates about this new series and all BCA arts happenings.

Collecting Series Edition 1: Art Books

Why art books? From zines, editioned prints, to one-of-a-kind art objects, art books are another form that connect audiences to artists’ work, and are available at a wide variety of price points. And if you’re not familiar with the Boston Art Book Fair, this is your chance to get a sneak peek of what the hype is all about! 

Our first panel will focus on art books and will feature: 

  • Darin Murphy Assistant Director at the SMFA Library
  • Kate Conlon print, sculpture, and bookwork artist, professor, and BCA studio resident
  • Sephora Bergiste Co-Chair fo the New England Chapter of the Guild of BookWorkers and SMFA Library Assistant
  • Randi Hopkins Director of Visual Arts at Boston Center for the Arts and co-founder of the Boston Art Book Fair

This event is open and relevant to everyone, whether you’re at the beginning of your collecting journey or a seasoned collector!
