‘Not by the Book’ art exhibition to open at the Flinn Gallery, Greenwich Library



GREENWICH – The Flinn Gallery is holding its first art exhibition since last year, after closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic and construction at the Greenwich Library.

“Not By The Book” will open with a reception on the evening of September 23 and run through December 8.

This exhibition highlights the work of four artists who celebrate the beauty and materiality of the book, according to the organizers.

It also announces the reopening of the Flinn Gallery after the pandemic and the library renovation and welcomes the return of three-dimensional works of art – and visitors – to space.

Featuring art by Shiela Hale, Chris Perry, Andrew Sovjani and Erin Walrath, the show invites visitors to view books in a new way, providing the opportunity to experience books – and their components – with visual enjoyment. , according to the organizers.

In “Not By The Book,” the four artists use books rather than the words written inside to express their creative ideas, according to curators. Each artist relies on different aspects of the physical structure of books as the basis of their artistic endeavors. The pages, covers, bindings and selected content contribute to the stories of the different artists of how words provided the narratives of the original authors.

The co-curators of the exhibition are Leslee Asch and Kira Albinsky.

An opening reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on September 23 at the Flinn Gallery, located on the second floor of the Greenwich Library at 101 W. Putnam Ave. The gallery is sponsored by the Friends of the Greenwich Library.

To view the exhibition, the gallery’s opening hours are 10 am to 5 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays; and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Masks are mandatory.
