Mattapoisett library artist taps into love of handmade books

Oct 31, 2022

Visit the Mattapoisett Free Public Library Artist Series between Nov. 15 and Dec. 14 to see an exhibit by local artist Liz LaValley.

In the exhibit titled Entitled Unfolding Thoughts: the Ephemera Series, LaValley describes her work as being for bibliophiles who love handmade books.

These unique handmade "accordion" books contain LaValley's poetry and each are enhanced with a unique photograph and a watercolor painting.

The first page of each book contains a poem unique to that book.

LaValley is a longtime member of Gallery X in New Bedford and is currently exhibiting at the Plymouth Center for the Arts.
