 All Hands on Deck: 15 Years of Collaboration at Small Craft Advisory Press

November 30 to May 18, 2024

Join us in celebrating 15 years of Small Craft Advisory Press!


Founded in 2009, Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP) is an artists book press at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. With a mission to enable artists and scholars to create artists book editions that push the boundaries and traditions of the book arts, SCAP collaborates with creatives from across the world to produce sculptural and experimental artist books. This exhibition will feature books, printed ephemera, and the equipment and tools that go into producing these elaborate, interactive works of art.


SCAP is led by Professor Denise Bookwalter. Denise works in a range of print media including traditional and digital processes, artist’s books, installations and dimensional prints. Her work has been exhibited in a variety of venues nationally as well as internationally. She received her BA from Northwestern University and her MFA from Indiana University in Printmaking. Sarah Scarr joined SCAP in 2021 as the press manager. She is a writer, book artist, and translator. She produces artist books as Two Trick Pony Press & Bindery, which has released collaborations with Sophie Strohmeier, Sarah Panlibuton Barnes, Dee Dee Behind, and others. She has an MFA in Book Arts from the University of Alabama, and degrees in Creative Writing from Columbia University and the University of Alabama.


50 Years of Collecting

January 11 to March 30, 2024

One of the primary missions of MoFA is to collect and preserve artworks for the study and enjoyment of current and future patrons. This exhibition, which includes a very small selection of the over 7000 works in the care of the museum, celebrates five decades of collecting and illustrates the deep connections members of our community have to these objects. Like so many vital resources on our campus, the collections at MoFA are enriched through donors, alumni, faculty, and students. As you engage with this eclectic selection, we invite you to consider the things you choose to collect, your connections to these artworks, and what work you would preserve for the future. 



Talamh agus Teanga: Land and Language in Contemporary Irish Art

January 25th to May 18th, 2024

Talamh agus Teanga engages the Irish language in contemporary creative practice to reflect on our interconnected worlds. Through visual art, dance, film and performance, these Irish artists ground their work in the ethos of fite fuaite, the Irish phrase meaning, “interwoven or inextricably connected.” Their artistic practices reflect on the deeply interconnected and dynamic relationships between people, language, land, and sea. This exhibition gathers artists engaged with land-based practices who are both native speakers as well as learners of Irish in a celebration of the rich history and vitality of Irish language, culture, and art.

This project is sponsored in part by the State of Florida through the Division of Arts and Culture, the FSU Council on Research + Creativity, Culture Ireland, FSU’s Native American and Indigenous Studies Center, FSU’s Department of Art History, and an Emigrant Support Programme Heritage Grant through the Government of Ireland’s Global Irish Program.  

Additional funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the Florida Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
