Students experience art through book arts

 At the Lucille Caudill Little Fine Arts Library, students in Natasha Giles’ Art Studio 102 class were treated to a visit by photographer and book artist, Mary Rezny.  Students in sections of this UK Core class have an assignment every semester to create a book. 

After a presentation about artists’ books in the Little Library collection, Mary talked with students about her professional career and how she has branched into the book arts.  Recently, Head of Special Formats Cataloging Kerri Baunach completed the original cataloging of Mary’s 14 books for our collection. 

Previously, she had cataloged the two books by Mary Rezny that include photographs from the Horse Mania public art project, insuring access to this local author/artist’s titles.  One of Mary’s works, “Perpetual Amaryllis”, is pictured above.  We now have 126 records for artists’ books in InfoKat, and they are housed in the closed stacks area of the Little Library.
