Seager Gray Gallery announces a special collaborative space in the book room, centered around an artist book project with Nance O’Banion and Casey Gardner.  The interactive exhibition is entitled, “2 Here: Gardner + O’Banion and runs from September 2 through September 29.  A reception for Nance O’Banion and Casey Gardner opens on September 4 from 6 to 8pm in conjunction with the Mill Valley Art Walk.

2 Here: Gardner+O’Banion
focuses on elaborately playful bookworks by the artists which are both uniques and multiples. This exhibition of collaborative and individual projects also includes evocative paintings, energetic constructions, along with interactive amusements for the visitor, all made with an ear to the narrative contained within.

Casey and Nance started their current collaboration over a year ago.  It began with a game made from a set of words they found provocative which when randomly selected from an envelope became the artists’ departure points for making art.

At the heart of the show is the debut of their letterpressed bookwork, HereSay featuring volvelles, non-linear reading, cartography & randomography. The book is about how we speak, how we hear, and how we locate ourselves along the dimensions of truth and lie.

 The exhibition coincides with the gallery’s one person show for artist Claudia Marseille entitled “Journeys”.  Both exhibitions run through the month of September.
