The MFA Book Arts/Printmaking Program at the University of the Arts is pleased to present “Form & Verse: Inge Bruggeman and Barbara Mauriello.” Bruggeman and Mauriello are this year's visiting artists to the Book Arts/Printmaking Program, and the show in the Printmaking Gallery features a range of their recent works.

Inge Bruggeman is a book artist and fine press printer working out of Portland, Oregon. She is the proprietor of Ink-A! Press, Textura Book Arts Studio, and is on the Book Arts Faculty of the Oregon College of Art and Craft. Her prints and books are widely noted for their exhaustive attention to craft and detail. Bruggeman's work explores the compelling connotations of the book as an object and investigates the relationships between text and image.

Barbara Mauriello is a book artist and conservator from Hoboken, New Jersey. She is on the faculty of The New York Center for the Book and the School of Visual Arts in New York, and has collaborated with artists such as Max Gimblett and William Kentridge. Her work is deeply engaged with materials, landscape, and pattern. She is particularly noted for her fine boxes, to which she often adds architectural elements to create new spaces.
