Pauline Plummer & Annette Chevallier (UK)
Annette Chevallier is a painter with many exhibitions to her name. Pauline Plummer is a poet/writer of short stories with several publications to her name. They have worked together on projects in the past and chose The Sunderland Book Project in order to create an artist’s book based in the North East. Sunderland Winter Gardens is presented as a Black & White folded card with image and poem.
Melanie Shee (UK)
Melanie Shee used to be a maker of clothes, stained glass and other lovely objects, but then stopped making and instead worked in the creative sector helping other people to create and make.
Melanie has a passion for Sunderland and Hartley Wood (her cat) and has combined the two to create a book for the Sunderland Book Project.
For the Love of Hartley presents a handmade A5 book with a collection of pictures & images collated and placed alongside happy memories of watching glass blowers at Hartley Wood Glass.
Kay Henderson (UK)
Kay Henderson has been making books for a number of years and following the Sunderland Book Project from the outset. Her geographical location (living less than a mile away from the region’s boundary) presents an obvious connection to the city and the motivation to contribute to the project. Henderson presents a concertina style book. The images reference Sunderland maps selected from various time periods using difference scales. The maps have been translated in such a way as to render them abstract.
The next exhibition after BALTIC Artist’s Book Fair is at Greenfield Arts & Community Centre and will be part of the gallery exhibition ‘Special Edition’ on show from Thursday 4th July to Thursday 25th July 2013 at Greenfield Arts Centre.
