Carson Valley Arts Council presents award-winning artist Debbie Lambin at the Copeland Gallery in Minden starting Thursday through Aug. 31.
Lambin brings the pages of novels and bestsellers to life by folding and molding the pages into miniature sculptures that tell the story from the inside out.
Lambin is a working artist with more than 40 years working in many art mediums from watercolor, printmaking, and sculpture. Currently, working with paper such as books and magazines, she has become a paper sculptor, turning the discarded literature into treasures. Debbie works with her daughter Rachael creating these unique sculptures calling their “one of a kind” works of art, MyThousandWords book sculptures.
Books are created by mom Debbie, son John-Henry and daughter Rachael started to take books slated for the trash and began repurposing them and making them into art. The name “My Thousand Words” as a spinoff of the tag line “A Picture is worth a thousand words” and it was then in 2015 that My Thousand Words was born!
The exhibit can be viewed 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and is available for purchase.
CVAC will host an artist’s reception for Debbie on 1-3 p.m. July 8. The reception is free and open to the public.
