>Featured Artists Series-Rita Valley: An Idiosyncratic ABC

>An Entirely Idiosyncratic ABC (otherwise known as the "Band Aid Alphabet")
>brings together several directions in Valley's work. Text and sewing are
>presented in unexpected ways, and the work flirts with the uncomfortable
>union of the beautiful and the disgusting, the personal and the public. The
>work also exists in several manifestations: as a twenty-six piece wall
>display and as two separate book realizations.

>altered books that were carved into 3-dimensional landscapes while other
>artists use typography and/or mix-media to suggest terrain.
