The Roundtable was created for passionate bookbinders and artists to collaborate in creative efforts, keeping the love for book arts alive and influential. With workshops, holiday sales, exhibitions, and monthly meetings, the Roundtable continues to provide artists the opportunities to learn, share and exhibit their books. 
Opening reception: March 1, 1-4
Breaking through Tradition
April 3 - May 3, 2014
 We live in an exciting and innovative time. Society has moved beyond traditional values and established norms to become more inclusive. Worldwide events such as the United States electing an African American President and Pope Francis I embracing the LGBT community once seemed like impossible events. Changes of this magnitude impact the way people encounter both their everyday social interactions and the greater world around them. Public reactions to these transitions vary between praise and outrage. Through this show, we are seeking to express these experiences and communal shifts through art in various forms.

Artists: Francesca Azzara, Aileen Bassis, Pauline Chernichaw, Lawrence Ciarallo, Patricia Dahlman, Chris Espositio, Diana Jensen, Katrina Majkut, Deborah Pohl, Trix Rosen, Patrica Cazorla and Nancy Saleme, Vaughn Spann, Taryn Wells.

Group show curated by Alexsandra Simakowicz & Maureen Harrison, Guest Curators in association with the M.A. program in Museum Professions at Seton Hall University

Opening reception on 4/3/ 7pm-9pm
