Show curated by Barbara Mortkowitz

Barbara Mortkowitz has curated a show which is currently at the Jewish Community Library in San Francisco.

Even Hoshen Press: Fine Books from Israel
Exhibit: through March 16, 2008

Even Hoshen private press in Ra'anana, Israel represents a collaboration of father and son Uzi and Ido Agassi. Named after the twelve precious stones of Aaron's breastplate, the press produces books in limited editions, accompanied by original etchings, prints, or woodcuts, with special hand made bindings. Book artist and designer Ido Agassi will be present at the opening reception on January 13, giving an artist's talk at 3 pm. This exhibit represents the first time the press's work is being displayed in the United States.
