AMHERST, Mass.—Michael Kasper, a reference librarian at the Amherst College Library, will present an exhibition of collages, books and posters titled “The Union Makes Us Strong” from April 4 through 28 at the Jerome Liebling Center for Film, Photography and Video at Hampshire College. The gallery is open Sunday through Thursday from 1 p.m. until midnight, and on Friday and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. A reception for the artist will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, at the gallery.
Critic Richard Kostelanetz, in the Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes (2001), wrote that Kasper, a widely published author and graphic artist, has produced “a series of tart visual/verbal fictions… that his peers commonly rank among the best.” The Hampshire show includes original collages, complete paste-ups for two artist’s books and an array of published work drawn from more than three decades of productive work.
