Celebrating the women of WNY Book Arts
March is for the ladies. In celebration of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we’re getting to know some of the women here at the heart of Book Arts. We’re made up of a growing community of female printmakers, teaching artists, book enthusiasts, shop consignment artists, illustrators, supporters, and a whole bunch of others who make us home to the creatively curious. And the creativity and ambition of these women can be found right here on the shelves of the shop at 468 Washington.
The Book Arts Shop is home to a collection of unique, handmade wares showcasing the artistic talent (& women-owned businesses!) we have here in the Queen City. Hand-printed cards, posters, stationery and apparel reside among handbound books, journals, notebooks & more; all made by over 90 consignment artists, volunteers, and our all-female staff….huzzah! Each and every sale from the shop helps to support & build this growing community of artists.
We’re proud to support and provide opportunity for so many creative & powerful female artists. Round of applause for these ladies, keep on creatin’!
Stop in the Shop to peruse & get inspired by the handmade items made by these hardworking women, and many more!
Open Hours: Thursday 10-2, Friday 12-6, Saturday 10-2.
Oh and don’t forget to say hi to our leading ladies, Olga, Barbie & Mandy – our beloved printing presses!
