I LOVE BOOKS
a gallery talk with Ann Whitney and Barbara Brown
Sunday, July 14, 2013 2:00 pm
Ann Whitney has been a book lover all of her life. Her oldest book is a volume of a cheap romance published in the 1700′s. It is bound in leather and very trashy. She has no idea how the story ends because she doesn’t have the next volume.
For Ann, libraries and used bookstores are places of peace and happiness. She has been an on-again, off-again Ann Arbor resident, and plans on staying that way for the rest of her life.
Her interest in history and art leads her to speculate on our relationship to books, in all their embodiments — from the tablets in the days of Hammurabi to the present day.
Barbara Brown has been a book artist for 20 years and a book lover all of her life.
She has taught book arts extensively, most recently at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, and exhibits in book arts and paper shows around the country. She is a member of WSG Gallery where she curates a book arts show every two years.

WSG Gallery featured in The Crafts Report magazine
“…In addition to the fairs, Ann Arbor has an impressive gallery scene. WSG (formerly on Washington Street, now on Main), represents an outstanding group of contemporary regional artists….”
-excerpt from article by Jim Weaver on page 54 in the February 2011 issue of The Crafts Report, “the business resource for artists and retailers”. Jim goes on to feature the work of gallery artist Norma Penchansky-Glasser, and how “Working without a live model, she is nevertheless able to capture the line and grace of the human form in motion.”
Ann Arbor Arts in American Style Magazine
“…Cross the street and head for WSG Gallery (306 S. Main St.), owned by 16 artists, and a showcase for fine art at affordable prices by 22 local artists. WSG caters to a whole spectrum of art lovers, says member artist Michelle Hegyi: those who come to browse, those following how a particular artist evolves, and those looking for exceptional quality, affordable fine art…”
-excerpt from article Arts Walk: Ann Arbor, by Hope Daniels in the November 2010 issue of American Style Magazine, “a full-color, quarterly consumer magazine focused on contemporary craft, craft collectors and the artists who create studio craft art”
