The Arts Fund Presents...

Bridging Fine Art with Book Arts & Literature

Featuring UCSB Faculty and Alumni of the College of Creative Studies

The Arts Fund is pleased to announce the opening of Bridging Fine Art With Book Arts and Literature, curated by Danelle Moon, Director of Special Research Collections, UCSB Library. A reception will be held at The Arts Fund Gallery on Friday, July 21, 2017 from 5-8pm during the Funk Zone Art Walk.

This exhibition presents the works of Carolee Campbell (Ninja Press), Linda Ekstrom, Mary Heebner (simplemente maria press), Harry Reese and Sandra Liddell Reese (Turkey Press & Reese Editions). Each of these artists bring together aspects of fine arts in traditional  forms and abstract forms, through creatively engineered structures both bound and unbound, to the poetic, playful, and novel, to altered book forms that inspire the imagination and influence new understandings of the meaning of the book as text and as art. These master artists and printers have grounded the UCSB College of Creative Studies as a destination program in the study of the book arts.

The exhibition will be on view until September 10, 2017 at The Arts Fund Gallery, located at 205-C Santa Barbara Street. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday-Sunday from 12-5pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
