April 21st ­ May 14th The University of the Arts 2006 MFA Book Arts/Printmaking Thesis Shows challenge the idea of the artist's book. The shows will be held at The University of the Arts' Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery in two installments. Opening receptions will be held in the gallery from 5-8 PM on April 21st for Chapter One and May 5th for Chapter Two.

Multi-media installations; traditional, alternative, and experimental bookbinding, printmaking, photography and other mixed media form the exhibition. These artists invite the viewer to ask: is narrative a required aspect of a book? What is a book? How does the book's structure inform content and vice-versa?

Exhibiting artists in Chapter One, from April 21st-May 1st, are Rachelle Woo Chuang, Julianna Foster, Melanie Mowinski, Erin Tohill Robin, Rutherford Witthus and Barbara Zuckerman. Artists in Chapter Two, from May 5th - 14th, are Lucia Farias, Adrienne Gale, Andrea Levy, Mary Tasillo and Ali Zandi.

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. www.uartsmfaba.com
