Richard Kegler: Re:Bound Opening Reception

Richard Kegler: Re:Bound Opening Reception

Book Arts kicks off its 15th anniversary programming with the opening of Richard Kegler: Re:Bound, a survey of Kegler’s 40-year career as a printmaker, book artist, and designer. There will be an opening reception on September 23rd, with an artist talk at 6pm, and then the exhibition will continue to be on display through November 3rd.

With the opening of Richard Kegler: Re:Bound, Book Arts celebrates the vision of our founders who saw the potential for a unique arts organization on a once forgotten corner of downtown Buffalo. The exhibition will survey the breadth of Kegler’s storied 40 year-career and include McScream, the artist’s Edvard Munch tribute/parody woodcut from the late 1980s, accompanied by a facsimile letter from a large corporation who claimed trademark infringement after derivative products (coffee mugs, watches, postcards) were made with this image. A range of Kegler’s early handmade books and selections from his mail art experiments, which he has characterized as implicating “the post office as the un-knowing collaborator in the final piece,” will also be featured.
