Doug Beube, a mixed-media artist working in bookworks, collage, sculpture and photography, talks at BookWorks in West Asheville, April 28 at 6pm
Since 1993, he has been curator of a private collection in New York City entitled, The Allan Chasanoff Bookworks Collection: The Book Under Pressure.
Doug teaches classes at Parsons The New School in mixed-media; and workshops at Penland, Haystack and Peter's Valley. Prior to receiving an MFA in Photography from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY in 1983, he was darkroom assistant to Minor White in Arlington, MA. He exhibits extensively both nationally and internationally and his bookworks and photographs are in numerous private and public collections.
In the spring of 2011, a monograph about his artwork over the past thirty years entitled, Breaking the Codex: Bookworks, Collage and Mixed-Media comes out. Several writers, critics and curators contributed essays about his art. From March to May, he will be at the Cassilhaus Art Residency in Chapel Hill, NC working on a commissioned mixed-media bookwork.
