The University of the Arts is pleased to announce the 2011 MFA Book Arts/Printmaking Thesis Exhibitions in the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery. From traditional to innovative concepts and book structures, the exhibitions are the culmination of the artists’ work in the two-year MFA program.

Exhibiting artists in Chapter One, on view April 21-30, are Jody Arthur, Laura Beyer, Becky Davies, and Sean Dyroff. Through installation, paper sculpture, and the book, Jody Arthur uses the language of maps to explore how identity is shaped by location. Laura Beyer is exhibiting cast and drawn objects reflecting on construction of space and the concept of home. Becky Davies and Sean Dyroff present a collaborative installation of sculptural images varying in form and processes that leave evidence of time.

Exhibiting artists in Chapter Two, May 5-14, are Dan Corrigan, Turner Hilliker, Jamie Lynn Schilling, and Yuka Petz. Dan Corrigan’s new body of work questions the changing condition of the book in our culture through altered books and eroded text. Turner Hilliker presents zines and installations that converge his habits and vernacular into both individual and universal pieces. Yuka Petz exhibits sculptural works on handmade paper that investigate elements of written language. Jamie Lynn Schilling has created a city block made up of tiny hand embroidered books, as well as letterpress-printed broadsides and paper-cuts that celebrate ordinary moments.
