Friday June 1st 2018

5 PM First Friday in Gallery – Mendocino College Student Work

5 PM in the Tapestry Studio – THE RHINO PROJECT with Anne Beck and Michelle Wilson

7 PM in the classroom – The Boro Aesthetic

Jody Alexander will discuss how Japanese Boro textiles have influenced her artwork. She will show images of Japanese Boro textiles, artwork by other artists that create in the spirit of the art of mending, and her own artwork. Jody will also bring some real Japanese Boro textiles from her own collection for visitors to view.


Jody Alexander is an artist, bookbinder, librarian and teacher who lives and works in Santa Cruz, California. She combines textiles and found objects with discarded books, and gives them new life as scrolls, wall pieces, books, sculptural objects and installations. Her current work is inspired by the art of repair, mending techniques, and reuse.

 

Her work appears in a number of publications including Masters: Book Arts: Major Works by Leading Artist, 500 Handmade Books, and 1000 Artists’ Books: Exploring the Book as Art. Jody is the 2015 recipient of the Rydell Visual Arts Fellowship. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from U.C.L.A., and a Master’s degree in Library Science from Simmons College, Boston, MA.

She is the author of The Boro Aesthetic: Books, Bags, Zakka and Zokin available through Blurb and Amazon. Her online workshops can be found on Creativebug.com.
