Sep 27, 2013 05:00 PM
Since 1982, Genie Shenk has recorded each night's dream in visual form. Yearly records are a reference of ideas and a source for other works. Her imagery varies from circular monoprints to collaged paper to adaptations of illustrations found in antique atlases and dictionaries. The exhibit will highlight Shenk's extensive career.
After receiving an MFA from UCLA in 1990, Genie Shenk studied bookbinding with David Brock in San Diego, California. For seventeen years, she taught book arts at San Diego Mesa College and at the Athenaeum Library of Music and the Arts in La Jolla, California. She now focuses on studio work. Her one-of-a-kind artistsʼ books have been exhibited frequently and are represented in numerous special collections.
