Language and line, phrase and form, syllable and shape: countless ways to explore the relationship between writing and art. This text-activated/juried exhibit includes drawings, watercolors, prints, photographs, collages, and sculptural forms by members of PaperWorks. PaperWorks, the Sonoran Collective for Paper and Book Artists, provides educational and creative opportunities for all who work with and on paper, and promotes the appreciation and enjoyment of the paper and book arts through regular and special events. Works by more than 20 artists were selected for this exhibit by Associate Professor Cerese Vaden and Professor Karen Zimmerman, both of the University of Arizona School of Art.

Come to the Poetry Center Library on Thursday, June 4, 5-7 PM for a public reception celebrating PaperWorks: Between Word and Image. The reception will feature remarks by Karen Zimmerman.
