Free book to Libraries: 45 Years at OK Harris

Leave a comment

Ron Weis, author/compiler of “45 Years at OK Harris” has generously offered to donate copies to art libraries, including shipping!

The volume consists primarily of color photographs featuring 45 years of exhibition announcements as photographed on the walls of O.K. Harris Gallery at a celebration prior to its closing in April 2014. It also includes black and white reproductions of the gallery’s exhibition schedules.

To quote Joanna Mattera’s review at http://joannemattera.blogspot.com/search?q=45

The volume is “Beautifully printed on glossy paper, it features a gray bookboard cover–the material that usually gets covered with fabric or paper–and a visible binding. Red endpapers offer a visual jolt. Weis worked with Randem Press publisher Abby Kinsley to get the volume’s unique look and feel. Want to know who showed there? The last third of the book includes scanned images of the year-by-year exhibition schedule, with every single artist for every year from 1969 to 2014”.
