MFA Book Arts and Crafts/Fibers Exhibition

Gallery 224 & President's Office

Held in conjunction with the "Lenore Tawney: Wholly Unlooked For" exhibit in the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery featuring paper-focused work by late artist Lenore Tawney (1907–2007), a leading figure in the contemporary fiber arts movement. The Maryland Institute College of Art, Tawney's alma mater, is hosting a complementary exhibition under the same title featuring her line-based objects.

This exhibit features work by UArts students in the MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking and Crafts/Fibers programs, who have each created a piece in response to Tawney’s work. The students researched an extraordinary collection of objects from the Tawney Foundation, including old books and parts of old books, wood containers, small bottles and thread, which they incorporated and used as inspiration for their exhibition pieces.

Reception: Thursday, January 24, 5–7 p.m.
