McNeese State University's Frazar Memorial Library is hosting an exhibition of handmade artist books through Dec. 5 that were produced this semester by students enrolled in Contemporary Approaches to Drawing, an upper level drawing class taught by Heather Ryan Kelley, McNeese art professor.
The course explores the technical and conceptual challenges of book structures, according to Kelley, and this semester the focus was on sculptural book works. Forms of construction include accordion, maze, Coptic and flower formats.
The library hours are Monday-Thursday, 7:45 a.m.-10:30 p.m., Friday, 7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Saturday, 1-5 p.m., and Sunday, 2-10 p.m.
