When you combine books, paper, fine art prints and the creative artists that inspire, you get the Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair (1 Veterans Place, Silver Spring).
More than 40 exhibitors of prints, fine paper and book arts will be showcasing their crafts Nov. 16-18 at the Silver Spring Civic Center.
Artists will demo skills as such as screenprinting, stone lithography and paper making, as well as using handmade paper to create clothing, ornaments and decorations.
The preview party kicks off Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Silver Spring Civic Center. Browse art for sale while you mingle with the artists who made it. Raffle tickets will also be on sale.
Choose from book fair tickets ($10, one day) or conference tickets ($30, one day; $55 two days), which include speakers and demos as well as the book fair.
Pyramid is a non-profit contemporary art center dedicated to the creation and appreciation of hand papermaking, printmaking, digital arts, and the art of the book.
