University of Dallas presents "The Space Between" opening reception
The University of Dallas Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery will present a group exhibition of handmade artist books and printed works, titled "The Space Between," which converges around the idea of the space between things both in a literal and a metaphorical sense.
In a time when bookstores are closing shop and more individuals are turning to digital readers, the art of bookmaking is conversely thriving in contemporary art. Contemporary artist books are a dynamic and interactive art form that involves printing, papermaking, typography and graphic design - and Wallace has a selected a talented array of artists whose strong craftsmanship and expression are powerful and engaging examples in the field.
Exhibit subjects range from investigations of the physical and emotional space between people, places and things, to transitory moments when one thing shifts and becomes another. Each artist employs a design approach to investigate the empty space on a page, highlighting space and shapes between letters and form.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through September 23.
