Wednesda~May2,2018 LIt anu t,Al w t z aJvt)c, Al Sixth-graders' 3-D creations set to go on display at Charles Town Library is a tunnel book called a tunnel book? It's thought that the unique hand-crafted books that meld storytelling and three-dimensional art got the name because of a Victorian engineering triumph - the completion of the turmel under theThames River in London in 1843. To commemorate the big event, many Londoners created the books, each a series of pages held together by folded strips of paper on each side, accordion- style. Tunnel books, with foreground, middle ground and backgrounds, deliver the illusion of depth and perspective. Liz Goins Starting Thursday at the Charles Town Library, art lovers, book fans and others will get the chance to see a new exhibition of tunnel books just created by sixth-grade art students at Shepherdstown Middle School. Teacher Katherine Mac- Kinnon partnered with award-winning paper artist, Liz Goins, on the the tunnel book project and during Thursday's opening reception. Goins will share brief remarks at 6 p.m. about the process involved in creating such a keepsake. Goins. whose work with the students came thanks to a Teaching Arts Creatively grant funded by the Jefferson Arts Council, said the project allowed students to explore the idea of the physical book and how we interact with them. "Can a physical book tell a story without text?" Goins asks. "Does a physical book remain important in the digital age?" Goins, who haa a maatcr'a degree in art education, taught in Montgomery County, Md and now works from her home in Charles Town. She's been making hand-made books since she took a workshop in college. "It made sense for me to make books," she explains. "I love the entire process of bookmaking - constructing, finding the words, and decorating the page." WANT TO GO?
