An exhibit featuring artists' books and prints by Margot Ecke and Eileen Wallace opens the fall season this week at Gainesville State College's Roy C. Moore Art Gallery.
Ecke's work focuses on passages from the Bible dealing with love, Corinthians specifically, in anticipation of her marriage this fall.
Ecke is creative director of Smokey Road Press, a design and letterpress studio in Winterville. She previously held a residency at the Carolina Rediviva Library in Uppsala, Sweden, where she studied medieval bookbinding structures, and later was the Victor Hammer Fellow in the Book Arts at Wells College in Aurora, N.Y. She was assistant professor of Book Arts and Printmaking at the University of Georgia from 2006-2009.
Wallace is a letterpress printer and book artist specializing in custom printing and bookbinding. In addition to maintaining a private studio, she teaches workshops across the country and is currently visiting assistant professor in Printmaking and Book Arts at UGA.
The gallery will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays. A closing reception is set for noon Sept. 29.
The gallery is located in the Continuing Education/Performing Arts Center on the GSC Oakwood campus.
