Richard Kegler: Re:Bound Opening Reception

September 23 @ 5:00 pm

Saturday, September 23rd Book Arts Center hosts Richard Kegler: Re:Bound Opening Reception. The event begins at 5pm. For more information, click here.

Book Arts kicks off its 15th anniversary programming with the opening of Richard Kegler: Re:Bound, a survey of Kegler’s 40-year career as a printmaker, book artist, and designer. The opening will feature a brief artist talk by Kegler at 6:00 p.m.

With this opening, Book Arts celebrates the vision of our founders who saw the potential for a unique arts organization on a once forgotten corner of downtown Buffalo. The exhibition will survey the breadth of Kegler’s storied 40 year-career and include McScream, the artist’s Edvard Munch tribute/parody woodcut from the late 1980s, accompanied by a facsimile letter from a large corporation who claimed trademark infringement after derivative products (coffee mugs, watches, postcards) were made with this image. A range of Kegler’s early handmade books and selections from his mail art experiments, which he has characterized as implicating “the post office as the un-knowing collaborator in the final piece,” will also be featured.

Richard Kegler formed P22 Type Foundry in 1994 and was a co-founder of the WNY Book Arts Center in Buffalo, New York. Richard has spent his career combining an interest in traditional printing crafts with entrepreneurial initiatives. His artwork over the last 40 years has used hand printing and book arts as a focal point. His current project Dry Inc. focuses on post-digital printing & typography and new printing tool development.
