2015 Minnesota Book Artist Award: Harriet Bart, Philip Gallo, Jill Jevne

On exhibit to January 25

Cowles Literary Commons

Presentation and reception: Thursday, January 15, 5:30 -- 7:30 pm at Open Book's - Target Performance Hall

The 2015 Minnesota Book Artist Award has been awarded to Harriet Bart, Philip Gallo and Jill Jevne for the artist’s book Ghost Maps. Part of a longstanding collaborative relationship between artist, printer and binder, Ghost Maps was conceived and created by Harriet Bart and printed by Philip Gallo at The Hermetic Press in Minneapolis, and its binding was designed and executed by Jill Jevne of Jacobsen, Minnesota. Since 2000, Bart, Gallo and Jevne have collaborated to produce ten artist books, two of which have been honored with Minnesota Book Awards in the Fine Press category. The images in Ghost Maps were created by Bart during a 2010 residency at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts where the paint-splattered floor of her assigned studio became the focus of a new project. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, Bart began to view the encrusted floor of Studio VA5 as an archive of the creative process. Attending to color and repetition, she marked off sections of the floor with tape, scrubbed spaces between them and took aerial photographs. The result is a stunning, site-specific piece documenting the presence and absence of the forty-six artists who preceded Bart in Studio VA5.

Harriet Bart

Harriet Bart (Minneapolis, MN) creates evocative content through the narrative power of objects, the theater of installation, and the intimacy of artists books. She has a deep and abiding interest in the personal and cultural expression of memory; it is at the core of her work. Using bronze and stone, wood and paper, books and words, everyday and found objects, Bart’s work signifies a site, marks an event, and draws attention to imprints of the past as they live in the present.

Bart’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Germany, and she has completed more than a dozen public art commissions in the United States, Japan, and Israel. She has been the recipient of fellowships from the Bush Foundation, McKnight Foundation, MacDowell Colony, Virginia Center for Creative Arts, NEA Arts Midwest, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Since 2000, Bart has published numerous fine-press books and mixed media bookworks. She has won two Minnesota Book Awards. Her work is included in many museum, university, and private collections, including: Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art, Library of Congress, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Weisman Art Museum, Jewish Museum, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry. She is a guest lecturer, curator, and founding member of the Traffic Zone Center for Visual Arts in Minneapolis, MN. Bart is represented by Driscoll Babcock, NY.
