ASU faculty featured in upcoming exhibition celebrating book arts

January 24, 2020

Arizona State University School of Art faculty members Daniel Mayer and John Risseeuw, professor emeritus, will both have work exhibited at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, in the Stanier Gallery.

"The Book Expanded: Language, Art, Form” explores the artistic medium of book arts and focuses on content-driven works that reflect social and cultural landscapes. The show will include Risseeuw's entire Paper Landmine Print Project, which consists of 15 prints, seven cast paper works and the artist's book “BOOM!.” Mayer's personal work and collaborative works from the School of Art's Pyracantha Press will complete the exhibition. Both artists will travel to the university to speak to students in the gallery.

“Selections from Arizona State’s Pyracantha Press and the oeuvres of book artists Daniel Mayer and John Risseeuw span over 30 years of creative activity in this area of expression,” according to the Washington and Lee website

Risseeuw taught book art, printmaking and papermaking for 40 years. He founded the Pyracantha Press, the book art imprint of ASU, in 1982, and his own Cabbagehead Press in 1972. Mayer is the current director of Pyracantha Press, where he publishes collaborative limited-edition books and prints.

The show runs Feb. 12 through March 20.
