Freed Formats: the book reconsidered is a traveling exhibition of 135 works of book art from 53 artists representing 17 US states and 2 countries. Freed Formats will appeal to all ages. Each person has a different feeling about what a book means to them, and book art engages anyone who has ever read, written or, for that matter, just held a book in their hands.

The exhibition opens in the first two venues at Ridgefield Guild of Artists in Ridgefield, CT and at Mark Twain Library in Redding, CT. on Saturday, March 30, 2019.

There will also be classes in book making for adults and children, artist's talks, and the screening of an award-winning film, a form of book art itself. More information will be posted on the websites.

Funding was provided by the following:
•The Department of Economic and Community Development, Connecticut Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
•The Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program, with public funds provided through the New York State Council on the Arts with support from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.
•A Grant from the Sylvia B. Henschel Trust, a bequest to Mahopac Public Library.
•A Project Assistance Grant from the College Book Art Association (CBAA). CBAA supports and promotes academic book arts education by fostering the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship and criticism.
•A Grant from The Friends of Mahopac public Library.
