Mark Williams: Small Drawings and Studio Notebooks


September 13 - December 4, 2010

This exhibit in the Mildred Hawn Gallery of the Hamon Arts Library was held in conjunction with “Exquisitely Calibrated: Recent Paintings by Mark Williams” at SMU’s Pollock Gallery. Williams’ small drawings and studio sketchbooks illuminate his working process of construction and variation of color, shape and line in a simpler, more intimate manner than seen in the paintings exhibited in the Pollock. None of the books exhibited had ever been out of Williams’ New York studio.

Books by Peter Koch


February 8 - May 16, 2010

The Hawn Gallery was the venue for "Books by Peter Koch." Koch, a printer based in Berkeley, California, is founder and director of the Codex, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the art and craft of the book. Since 1974, Koch has designed, printed and published fine books and ephemera ranging from limited editions of classical Greek literature to conference posters and keepsakes. This exhibition drew from the collections of SMU's Bridwell, DeGolyer, and Hamon Libraries to showcase examples of Koch's work as a master printer.
