‘Once Upon a Time’ is the title given to the current art installation located in the Fireside Room at the Agoura Hills Library. The books on display are called “Chunky Books,” a collaborative effort by different artists over several years.
“Each artist created a page and their cover of the themed book,” said Cim Castellon, city historian and display coordinator. “Each artist has a complete book, including their page and a page from each artist in the group. The cover templates are the same but uniquely decorated by each artist.”
Appropriately, there are two books in the exhibit with a Halloween theme. The installation will be on view through October.
This collection is on loan by artist Toni Mattock. Mattock will also be selling her notecards and jewelry at the Reyes Adobe Gift and Art Gallery beginning November 7.
