Novel Ideas Book Fair

As a tie-in to this spring’s five book-themed exhibitions, Blue Star Contemporary is hosting the Novel Ideas Book Fair, aptly timed to match up both with Contemporary Art Month’s First Friday as well as the influx of authors and publishers coming to town for the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) conference at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The two-day fair gives local readers a chance to get their hands on books, monographs, zines and more directly from the artists who make them — some of whom rarely sling their wares in San Antonio. In addition to two of the artists featured in Blue Star Contemporary’s spring exhibitions — Sarah Welch of Mystic Multiples and Rand Renfrow — the fair will showcase artists and publications including Clare Drummond (Austin), Animal Facts Club (Wimberley), Trilce Ediciones (Mexico City), Hellen Jo (Los Angeles) and Soberscove Press (Chicago) as well as San Antonio’s Cattywampus Press, Feral Editions, French & Michigan, St. Sucia and Sybil Press. Attendees can also look forward to talks, pop-up workshops and a slammin’ afterparty at Paper Tiger on Saturday night(7-11 p.m.)
