Compére Collective Presents: Scrappy Books by Alexandra Jamieson

For the month of June, we’re welcoming back local artist and activist, Alexandra Jamieson! She’s hosting a couple of events plus the Scrappy Reading Series is coming back for its second iteration.

Scrappy Books by Alexandra Jamieson

Discover the enchanting world of “Scrappy Books,” a captivating art show featuring the innovative works of Alexandra Jamieson. This unique exhibition showcases a mesmerizing collection of collage, altered books, and “Goth Girl Grimoires,” all crafted from found materials, discarded books, and vibrant New York City ephemera. Each piece breathes new life into forgotten objects, transforming them into intricate journals adorned with lace, tags, and ample journaling space, perfect for writers and witches alike.

Join us in celebrating the art of reinvention and storytelling through the tactile and visually stunning medium of upcycled materials. The show highlights Jamieson’s talent for merging the past with the present, creating works that are not only beautiful but also imbued with history and mystery.

In addition to the exhibition, Alexandra Jamieson will be hosting two interactive events on June 15th: 

Collage Class: Dive into the creative process with all supplies, technique, and design basics. Learn the art of collage using a variety of found materials. This hands-on class is $30 per person.

Upcycled Book Demonstration: Witness the magic of transforming old books into art. This demonstration offers insights into Jamieson’s techniques and is priced at $10.

20% of proceeds will be donated to the Brooklyn Public Library!

“Scrappy Books” is a must-see for art lovers, writers, and those who appreciate the beauty of reclaimed materials. Come and be inspired by the spellbinding creations and perhaps start your own journey in the art of upcycling.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the whimsical and thought-provoking works of Alexandra Jamieson. Each piece in “Scrappy Books” is a testament to the power of creativity and the endless possibilities found in the art of repurposing.
