Carol Emmons, retrospectacle, Lawton Gallery, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, 2017

A smart accordion catalogue for an exhibition of works by an old colleague in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay during October-November, 2017. An accomplished visual artist and experienced installation artist, Emmons has been mining a very rich vein for many years now, and her work has been featured in numerous shows around the state and the country.  There's a little nostalgia attached to this work as I served as the curator of art at the Lawton gallery for 15 exciting, and happy years from 2000-2015. 

Catalogue design by the former UW-GB student, Don Krumpos, and catalogue essay by Leslie Walfish. For me this work is a reminder of the simple, but rich format for accordion publications that the humble exhibition catalogue can provide.

10 pages, double-sided, individual pages 7.25"(h) and 6"(w), when opened 2ft 6".
