The Sunderland Book Project & Site Verify Revisited is the opening exhibition for our new temporary art space ’17 Claypath’. Come down for some art, chat and free drink!

**The exhibition will be followed by an after event at our new bar in Empty Shop HQ til late.**


The Sunderland Book Project is an international touring exhibition of handmade books, initiated by Book Artist and Printmaker, Theresa Easton. The project features work by national and international artists and aims to raise the profile of the city of Sunderland through the medium of artist’s books and provide a platform for artists to exhibit and showcase their work.

Site Verify Revisited
Site Verify was an artistic dialogue about regeneration, history and community. This dialogue was framed in the context of an evolving exhibition in the centre of Sunniside, Sunderland. Her work focused on J. F. Wilson’s Shopfitters which opened in 1918 and closed in 2008. Her work uses materials salvaged from the building including ninety years of blue prints upon which the mandate to Site Verify was written.

October 12, 2012 will be a revisiting of Site Verify. The original photographs of the factory printed on salvaged blue prints and an installation piece, The Forgetting Curve, will be shown alongside new artist books made by Dawn Felicia Knox with text by Richard W. Hardwick.


***All welcome – Free drinks and refreshments***

The exhibition wil run daily from 10am – 4pm until Sunday 21st October. Closed Monday and Tuesday
