Jacqueline Jacobs' work selected for San Diego Book Arts juried exhibit
SAN DIEGO – Jacqueline Jacobs, whose works in textiles and on canvas are part of the collections of various synagogues in San Diego, has another medium in which she excels: Book Arts. She has been notified that her book entitle “Misunderstandings” has been accepted for the juried exhibition of San Diego Book Artists, to be held May 29 through July 4 at the Geisel Library on the UCSD campus.
Prof. Kitty Maryatt, assistant professor of art at Scripps College and director of the Scripps College Press, selected 61 pieces by 54 artists for the exhibit from a total 200 books submitted.
Jacobs said in “Misunderstandings,” “I explore the concept of lack of communication” amog all peoples “no matter what language is used. If language doesn’t work, what will? Hopefully violence will not be the answer.”
Her book is constructed of wood panels and such other materials as “beeswax, paper, silk, oils, pastel, graphite and silk.”
“I go further by emphasizing the lack of hearing one another,” Jacobs added in an artist’s statement. “I make the point by embedding ‘dead’ hearing aids batteries in the wax and write ‘anybody listening.?’”
