Book artist Stacy Wakefield will present her collaboration on "Constructed Comfort," a book about the primary architecture of childhood fort building. The book presents two series of artworks by photographer Ellen Brooks, with which Wakefield created a limited edition riso-printed book. Wakefield will discuss the concept of artist books and show some favorite examples. She will also present the photographs and drawings of forts from the book. Participants will be invited to remember their own childhood forts and contribute to the ongoing project. DVAA is located at 37 Main St. in Narrowsburg, N.Y. Admission is free, with donations appreciated. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The event is subject to change in the event of bad weather.
