Exhibition Opening at the SF Center for the Book Gallery

Fateful Attractions: Fine Printing and Bookmaking in Santa Cruz
March 5-May 14, 2004
Reception: Friday March 5, 6-8pm
Admission Free

Longtime home to iconoclastic and artistic spirits, Santa Cruz has also
nurtured a vibrant community of fine-press printers and bookmakers for more
than 30 years. This exhibition, from March 5­May 14, takes visitors back to
the beginnings of letterpress printing on the Santa Cruz campus of the
University of California, and then moves forward to showcase a wide variety
of contemporary bookworks. Curated by Gregory Graalfs, the show presents
work from UC Santa Cruz¹s Cowell Press and the Lime Kiln Press, including
Granite and Cypress, William Everson¹s tribute to Robinson Jeffers; Mind,
Tongue, and Hand, a collection of broadsides; and Felicia Rice¹s
collaborative work with students and faculty. Also featured are works by Tom
Killion, Gary Young, Ruth McGurk, Peggy Gotthold and Lawrence Van Velzer of
Foolscap Press, Peter and Donna Thomas, Samuel Amico, Kate Hitt and Paul
Ritscher, among others.
