The University of the Arts 2010 MFA Book Arts/Printmaking Thesis Exhibitions will be held at The University of the Arts' Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery in two installments. Opening receptions will be in the gallery from 5:30-8:30 PM on Friday, April 23rd for Chapter I and Friday, May 7th for Chapter II.

From traditional to innovative concepts and structures, the exhibitions are the culmination of the artists' work in the two-year MFA program. Traditional, alternative, and experimental bookbinding, printmaking, video, multi-media installations, mixed media, and sculpture form the exhibitions. Within each body of work, the artist challenges the idea of a book and explores narrative concepts.

Exhibiting artists in Chapter I, April 19th-30th, are Mandy Dunn, Sally Faulkner, Katy Matich, Emily Pfahl, and Patrick Stump. Artists in Chapter II, May 3rd-14th, are Amber Chiozza, Donna Globus, Lara Henderson, Jessica Hoffman, and Asa Yoshie.

The University of the Arts' graduate program in Book Arts/Printmaking offers a course of study in which students explore the book as an art form that incorporates two-dimensional as well as three-dimensional structures. It embraces both the rich history of the book and the new processes and forms created by digital technology. Its concept of book arts includes fine-press printing and illustrated texts, visual and verbal narratives, and works that push the idea of a book beyond conventional expectations.
