Tangibles: Beauty and Purpose in the Art of the Book
On view September 17 – November 16, 2013

“The Northern Arizona University Art Museum presents “Tangibles: Beauty and Purpose in the Art of the Book.” This exhibition is created in the belief that the physical artifact of a book can offer sensory experiences and imaginative encounters that the realm of digital facsimiles and “virtual” art cannot.

The exhibition includes works that go beyond self-expression to engage with political and cultural issues in the contemporary world. The visual arts remain a compelling arena in which to effect criticism, reflection and change in a time of war, economic inequality and environmental destruction, to name only a few of the themes represented in the show. Pieces chosen for the exhibition will employ traditional media of paint, ink, paper, woodcuts, and engravings, but we are equally interested in works that fall outside expected definitions of what a book might look like or how one might experience a book – creatively defined – as an aesthetic object.”

This exhibition was co-juried by David Williams, Professor of Fine Art in Printmaking, School of Art, Northern Arizona University and Susan kae Grant, Professor of Art, Department of Visual Art, Texas Woman’s University.

January 22nd, Denton, TX: Opening Reception & Lecture for “Seductive Alchemy: Books by Artists “

Texas Woman’s University
Seductive Alchemy: Books By Artists
Opening Reception Tuesday, January 22, 2013 5:00-6:00 pm
Lecture by the curator Ruth Rogers, 4:00-5:00 pm

“In this exhibition, I have arranged the works in thematic ‘families’ as a way of emphasizing how shared creative inspiration can lead to such enormously varied expression in the finished piece. Like different pitches in a chorus, they enhance each other’s voice by being near one another. I have sought to choose books that are a balanced orchestration of all their elements, communicating on many levels – from nuanced color to unexpected touch to layered or visual text. Take time to let them unfold slowly, and read them not only with your eyes, but with your esprit, and all of your senses.” – Ruth R. Rogers, Curator of Special Collections, Wellesley College

The exhibition will be up, January 21 to February 15, 2013.
