Kabuki: The Alchemy
Eva G. Farris Reading Room, W. Frank Steely Library, Northern Kentucky University
August 16 - November 9, 2011
Artwork from the most recent volume in David Mack's Kabuki series, which, by no coincidence, was the selection for NKU's 2011 Book Connection Program, was exhibited during the fall term in Steely Library's Eva G. Farris Reading Room. On display were two hundred and twelve pages from the first eight chapters of the novel -- that is, the original artwork from which David created the novel -- incorporating painting, pen and ink drawing, and mixed media collage.
David created original drawings directly on the library's walls around and in between the pages of his novel. Below are two examples:
