The Art of the Alphabet is both the title of the December exhibition at Waterstone Gallery and of their alphabet book. The artworks created for this exhibition are all inspired by a letter of the alphabet, and are the illustrations in the book. In some cases the letters themselves are used as the starting point of the artwork.  Some depict an object starting with the given letter, while others are more fanciful interpretations and abstractions inspired by a word or phrase.  The media varies widely and includes hammered copper, glass, painting, wood sculpture, collage, encaustic, and printmaking. The introduction for the book “The Art of the Alphabet” was written by Jim Carmin, Special Collections Librarian at the Multnomah County Library. The book release party is Wednesday December 3 from 6-8PM.
