Everyone knows that Tim Tate is a storyteller artist extraordinaire. His narrative works are often informed with a wry sense of humor. Tim’s funnybone is now part of a new book by Schiffer Books.

Hardcover: 256 pages, Publisher: Schiffer Publishing (Release date: March 28, 2012), ISBN-10: 076434059X

Author Brigitte Martin has put together a book – “Humor In Craft” – featuring highly ironic, political, sarcastic, and just plain amusing works by artists from across the US and abroad. The book sure to challenge viewers to move beyond their own frames of reference when considering approaches to contemporary art.

Pittsburgh’s Society for Contemporary Craft (SCC) will be including Tim’s work “My Love Life Thus Far” in the Society for Contemporary Craft exhibition of work selected from the 265 artists in the book Humor in Craft this July 20 through October 27, 2012. A national tour of the exhibition is planned and further information on this will be forthcoming as soon as details have been finalized.
