Current Gallery Exhibit - Literary Pages Come to Life: Book and Paper Sculptures of Jodi Harvey

“For as long as I can remember I’ve been making art. When I was eight, my grandfather gave me a set of artist’s pencils which was the beginning of my obsession with art. I haven’t stopped since,” shared Harvey.

Growing up in a small town in southeastern Pennsylvania Brown studied art at Seton Hill University in Greensburg. It was here that she discovered 3D media. She continued, “I have always enjoyed reading. Books pull you into a new world. Art lets you see that world. It made sense to me that these two mediums should come together. The books we love to read should be made to come to life. Characters, that we care so much for, should come out of the pages to show us their stories. What we see in our imaginations as we read should be there for the world to see. My book sculptures are my way of making stories come to life.”

Harvey creates art from the pages of a book. The sculptures literally rise from the pages resembling a sophisticated type ‘pop up’ book. She often sculpts well known fictional characters, ships, sea creatures and monsters (www.boredpanda.com/paper-book-sculpture-art-jodi-harvey-brown). Her work has been exhibited all over the world.

Art Gallery at Liriodendron

The Liriodendron Non-Profit Art Galleries

Four rooms on the second floor of the historic Liriodendron mansion make up the gallery space curated by the Museum Committee. Three rooms offer rotating gallery space for works by artists from the Harford county region. The museum committee exists to curate these ongoing shows and their opening receptions. We work to provide visitors with a view of the current artists or retrospectives of past artisans from Harford County. We additionally showcase performing artists at the Liriodendron through grant monies obtained from the Harford County Cultural Advisory Committee and other benefactors.

The fourth gallery room (the Tile Room) serves a dual purpose. Used primarily as gallery space for our yearly exhibitions, on occasion it is used to showcase our permanent collection of local art. That collection is made up of works by local artists and represents different styles of art and different media.

The Museum committee functions through the energies of its volunteers. If you would be interested in volunteering to docent exhibits, help with the opening receptions or volunteer in the Gallery, please call 410-879-4424 for more information.
