An exhibition of accordion publications from the collection of Stephen Perkins, and featuring works by Erica Van Horn, Simon Cutts, and Ian Hamilton Finlay, among others. 

 

This show will run concurrently with Susan E. King's Printing Matters: Books, Ephemera and Photos - opening Saturday, September 19 and running through Sunday, October 18. 


Stephen Perkins is recently retired curator of art at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's Lawton Gallery, where he worked for more than 15 years. His blog, Accordion Publications, is dedicated entirely to accordion-fold publications, with a particular interest in artists' books and ephemera. He runs the WC Gallery from his home in De Pere, Wisconsin.
