Matt Liddle Artist’s Books and Prints
January 11 – February 22, 2008
Reception: Friday, February 1 from 5:30 – 7 pm (free and open to the public)
Matt Liddle calls book arts his field because it is a broad enough category to encompass most of the things that interest him. Paper, in its profound simplicity is simultaneously ephemeral and durable, and also infinitely transformable.

PRINTED: Contemporary Prints and Books
by North Carolina Artists
January 18 to February 29
Many printmakers and book artists that teach, exhibit and work at BookWorks are included in this wonderful show including Matt Liddle, Andy Farkas, Katherine McGinn, Jennifer Brook, Laurie Corral, Judith O'Rourke and Brandon Mise.
Acclaimed printmaker Bill Fick has curated the most comprehensive exhibition of North Carolina print and book artists to date: PRINTED: Contemporary Prints & Books by North Carolina Artists. On display from January 18 to February 29, 2008, the exhibition will feature 43 artists from across the state working in print and book making techniques, including etching, relief prints, lithography, linocuts, woodcuts, vitreography, screen prints, digital printing, mixed-media constructions, and more. A special section of the exhibition will highlight several North Carolina fine art and letter press studios such as Littleton Studios, Horse and Buggy Press, and Blue Barnhouse Press.
The exhibition will amply demonstrate the vivacity and range of the print community in North Carolina and the fascinating directions that contemporary printmakers are exploring. See www.greenhillcenter.org for more information.
