“Cutting Edge Books,” a juried exhibition by artist members of Pacific Center for the Book Arts (PCBA) and “Student Books,” a companion show by 11 Cal State East Bay art students and alumni, will share the University Art Gallery beginning Oct. 22.

The professional show includes the work of 31 artists that goes beyond traditional books to include pages unencumbered by binding, nontraditional materials, free form shapes and interactive media.

The creators are both professionals and emerging artists from California, Arizona, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Australia. Curators are Michael Henninger, CSUEB associate professor of art, and Tanya Wilkinson and Priscilla Otani of PCBA.

Participating artists are Jody Alexander, Alice Austin, Tania Baban, Lark Burkhart, Diane Cassidy, Sas Colby, Steven Daiber, Betsy Davids, Reiko Fujii, Alisa Golden, CJ Grossman, Charles Hobson, Wendy Jordan, Deborah Kogan, Jim Machacek, Helen Malone, Victoria May, Barbara Milman, Zea Morvitz, Dorothy Nissen, Priscilla Otani, Bettina Pauly, Kathryn Pinto, Lynne Prather, Johanna Rogers, Christine Rolik, Elizabeth Sher, Tess Sinclair, Ellie Wilder, Tanya Wilkinson and Dorothy Yule.

“Student Book Art,” a collection of 12 pieces by Cal State East Bay art students and alumni, utilizes a range of book structures from simple pamphlets, to accordion folds, to scrolls, to unique bindings of the student’s own devising. Participating students are Matt Breault, Cherie Johnson and Michael Wallace; the alumni are Antonio Arribas-Mena, J. Campbell, Conrado Cruz, Robin Gotfrid, Patrick Ho, Jennifer Long, Angelo Martinez and Derek Wilson.

The pieces come from two classes, Art 4210 - Computers & Printmaking, a required course of Graphic Design majors, and Art 1121 - Intro to Bookmaking, which launched in Winter, 2007.

The combined exhibit will open with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 22 in the University Art Gallery, 25800 Carlos Bee Blvd., Hayward, and will feature discussions by several of the participating artists.

The shows continue Monday-Thursday through Nov. 29 (except Nov. 22) from 12:30-3:30 p.m. Admission is free to both the exhibits and opening.
