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.
***If you would like to purchase a piece from this show, please contact the gallery (via the contact form in the footer or by phone at 720-479-8434) for more information and current availability.***
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.
Join us for drinks, snacks, and a wonderful evening celebrating local art. In addition to our opening, Olde Town Arvada is a great destination for First Friday with openings at Vouna, The Cereal Box, Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters, and more.
