Event details

"Bound," a new exhibit opened in the Harry Krug Gallery in Porter Hall on Nov. 1 and runs through Dec. 10.

It features the work of Jessica McGan, a baker/decorator and production artist by day and an artist in her home studio in Roeland Park, Kansas by night. There, she specializes in handbound fine binding, book repair and print making with her studio assistant, 11-year-old Zoey, and a small jungle of nearly 50 plants.

She works with local printers as a special project binder and completes repairs for bookstores and private clients.

McGan, an alumnus of the Pittsburg State Department of Art (MA ’06), completed a graduate certificate in Book Arts from the University of Kansas School of Architecture in 2020. 

She'll give an artist's talk during an opening reception at noon on Nov. 10.

Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public during gallery hours, M-F 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
