The Stories we Tell:
An Introduction to Altered Books and Visual Journaling
Presented by Dr. Mary K. Riley
Saturday, Jan 18, 2020, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at Art on Park
(180 N Park Ave, Warren, OH 44481)
Cost: $65.00
All lives are stories: plotlines with twists and turns, villains and heroes. There are quests to be taken, challenges to overcome, and of course resolutions. All stories require that we start at the beginning. That we set the scene in order to understand how our own stories unfold.
In this introduction to altered books and visual journaling, we too shall start at the beginning. Learning how to deconstruct and prepare books for the new stories they will tell. This intimate one-day workshop will cover the basics of altered books, preparation, and mixed media that help us to process and maybe even turn the page on some chapters of our lives.
Please come prepared to write, dig deep, and be open to new experiences as we traverse five different processes and practices together. This is not a workshop about making art like mine. It is a workshop about finding your own voice and making art like you.
Please bring a book or journal to work in and any supplies you might want to have on hand. Coffee and snacks. We will take an hour lunch break, to move our bodies as well as our minds and explore nearby restaurants. Lunch is on your own.
Event will be hosted at James Shuttic’s Studio inside the Fine Arts Council of Trumbull County’s “Art on Park” location.

Recent Past Projects


This exhibition explored how neighborhoods and communities can become disconnected because of forgotten, neglected, or ignored investments in people-centered infrastructure. When sidewalks are overgrown, not maintained, or simply do not exist in communities, residents can become isolated in their homes or risk their own safety by being forced to walk in dangerous situations like broken or obstructed sidewalks or even worse, in the shoulder of a busy roadway.

In this exhibition a group of six photographers, two each from Mahoning, Mercer and Trumbull Counties, will help illustrate the challenges that exist as a result of aging or non-existent infrastructure.

Occupied 2.0 was a temporary exhibition
in a vacant, blighted house, located in one of Warren’s neighborhoods, which will include works of art created, installed, developed, revealed,
or performed by local artists exploring this year’s
theme of Fairytale & Fantasy.
Artists were encouraged to use salvaged or found materials, as well as the abandoned home itself, as part of their submissions.
This project showcased the work of local artists while providing a unique experience for residents in the neighborhood
and surrounding community.
