A  Year of Mornings

Friday, Nov 07, 2008 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Rabelais is pleased to present the East Coast launch of the book A Year of Mornings, 3191 Miles Apart by Portland artist/author Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes.

Join us Friday November 7th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM as we host a reception and book signing with the artists Vettese and Barnes.

A Year of Mornings is a book of photographic images taken by the artists everyday before noon and originally posted on a shared blog. The subtitle of the book comes directly from the blog, 3191, which refers to the mileage separating the two women in their coastal Portlands, one in Maine and the other in Oregon. The morning hours, before the hustle and bustle of the day commences, is the perfect time to pause and enjoy a sense of renewal and vitality. The book collects 236 images from the year long project, broken down into seasons with introductions by both authors.

A selection of photographs from the book will be on display at Rabelais for a month beginning November 7th, a First Friday Art Walk night. The authors/artists will be signing copies of the book and the art will be available for sale.
