The Book Arts Jam is a volunteer-run event sponsored Bay Area Book Artists (BABA). BABA is a small, grassroots book arts community. Founder Jone Small Manoogian describes BABA as "a warm and friendly, loosely-organized group of artists, who support one another in all aspects of creating books." Members meet twice a month to share information about upcoming exhibitions, demonstrate new skills, problem-solve works in progress, trade materials, and enjoy the company of others who are passionate about book arts.
Visit BABA's Web site to learn more.
Membership is free and open to anyone. Please come to one of our monthly meetings and find out how you can get involved.
