Oakville, Ontario | Victoria, British Columbia: Oakville Galleries | Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, 2010. First Edition, First Printing. ISBN: 9781894707336. pp. 57. Slim Square 8vo. Cardboard-type binding held with a mask-tape style binding along the spine. The binding embodies the central thesis of the exhibition namely that of the emergence of vernacular art. Replete with lovely colour photographs, illustrations, facsimiles, etc. No detectable flaws, contents bright, clean, and unmarked with tight, sound binding. Near fine. Unknown. ”Significant attention has been paid in recent years to the vernacular turn in contemporary art. The burgeoning notion that artists are moving away from industrial fabrication and precious materials toward handmade processes and modest mediums has come to be seen as emblematic of a generation of artists “returning” to the studio to the scale of the everyday”.
