Some upcoming shows I'll be in:

RSVP has again invited the Center for the Book to have their annual student works show for the March Iowa City Gallery Walk in their store. The Gallery Walk is tomorrow night (March 6th), 5-8pm, downtown Iowa City. Participating locations, including RSVP, will have walking maps showing where all the openings are being held. RSVP is a lovely little stationary store located at 140 N. Linn St., next to the Motley Cow. I'll have on display a copy of The Bad Sparrow codex, "The Search" letterpress print, and some historical proto-book models (a papyrus scroll with hand-cut reed and a model of a Singhalese Palm-leaf book).

I also have a small scroll in the Monumental Ideas in Miniature Books show, on display now at Columbia College Chicago for the Southern Graphics Council Conference 2009, Global Implications. The gallery space is small, but is in a great location on Michigan Ave. 5 blocks from Chicago Art Institute, next to the Hilton Hotel(the conference site for SGC). This international show of miniature books by 125 artists was curated by Hui-Chu Ying at University of Akron, with the help of her students. You can see lots of great photos of them, the show, and individual books at MIMB flickr site.
