Look up curator in the Webster’s 20th Century Unabridged Dictionary, and it would be fitting to see a picture of (from left to right) Katy Govan, Debbi Commodore, Deborah Greenwood, and Pat Chupa. It would also be apt to say Webster’s definition of the word does not begin to do the title of curator, justice. Or perhaps my copy of Webster’s Dictionary is just woefully out of date. Well, so it is, but even then, “one who has the care and superintendence of anything, as a museum, library, etc.” just doesn’t begin to describe the task of these four people. More than just members of the Puget Sound Book Artists, they were responsible for accepting and arranging 58 works of art from 32 artists for a stunning exhibition known as the 3rd Annual Puget Sound Book Artists Members Exhibition currently on display at Collins Memorial Library, the University of Puget Sound. A beautiful exhibition catalog, available here from Blurb, is also a tribute to the curatorial skills of these four artists. Take a bow ladies…..
