Last week of Tall Tales


A reminder that Deb Klein's wonderful exhibition 'Tall Tales' is in its last week at Hand Held.

Pop in from Tuesday - Saturday 12-5pm. Along with the beautiful exhibition we also stock Deb's range of zines and small books.

Deb will be in the gallery on the final day, Saturday afternoon, from about 2.30pm if you'd like to say hi.

As this is our last exhibition it's worth dropping in to pick up any books you've had your eye on before it's too late!

Over the next few weeks, and whilst we organise our next project, Hand Held will open from time to time - feel free to email me if you'd like to drop in for a look at our collection.

Keep an eye on the blog for info on pop ups, temporary spaces, street trading and other events in the next few months...

Tall Tales of Shadow women...

Deborah Klein's stunning exhibition 'Tall Tales' opened last Thursday night with the lovely crowd present keen to see Deb's most recent of works - an exciting new direction for this well established and well loved artist.
Deb has been working in small scale artist books and zines for some time however this is her first exhibition of this style of work. The exhibition is comprised of thirteen hand painted concertina style artist books on Khadi paper, each measures 80 x 15cm when open. They are bound simply with embossed black covers.
Along side the artist books is a collection of 25 miniature paintings, some that worked as studies for the artist books - all complete works in their own right.
Depicted are Deb's 'shadow women'... Each one evocative of an emotion, a narrative, a mystery...








Join us at Hand Held before July 6th to enjoy this exhibition in person.
