Opening Art Exhibit Reception & Lecture: Excavating Books: James Allen

The Whitworth University Art Department and the university’s Bryan Oliver Gallery invite you to an opening reception and lecture for “Excavating Books” with recent work from James Allen. The reception will be from 5-6pm in the Bryan Oliver Gallery, followed by a lecture by the artist at 6pm in Lied 102. “I make book excavations by carving into old books to reveal their content in a new way. The possibilities for these altered books are as endless as the various books out there. The first and most important step is finding the right book. I prefer using books that have beautiful graphic imagery but I often incorporate bits of text as well. Once a book is chosen and I begin carving into it the process dictates itself. The books tell me what to reveal and cut away as I work. There’s already a sculpture inside the book that is revealed one page at a time.”

Graffiti belongs to the streets. And I want to put more than just my name on a canvas. I like to control the destiny of the art I create. Characters, themes of music, love, food, hip-hop. I paint little slices of my imagination. My work has evolved to include unique, emotionally charged themes which are clearly influenced by the culture
that shaped me & made me into an ever-changing artist. I recently moved back to Spokane after being a traveling Chef for 3 years. Signed a lease on an amazing art studio & I’m ready to unpack & start becoming more involved in the community & always thriving Art scene here. I’m always available for the next adventure!!
