For the month of April, Balefire Goods welcomes local altered book artist Valerie Savarie for an exhibit of her new body of work, Tell Me A Story.
Valerie Savarie uses antique books as a starting off point to build multidimensional collages which create narratives that tie back to the books themselves. Valerie utilizes thoughtfully planned out cutting, sewing, painting to expose and hide specific aspects of the book to build a new narrative. Her manipulations are all done by hand while leaving the majority of the book and its bindings in place to create these altered books.
