The University Archives and Special Collections has always brought thought-provoking and world-class exhibitions to Southwest Florida, and this spring is no exception when they host acclaimed Norwegian letterpress artist Dr. Ane Thon Knutsen. Thon Knutsen is internationally known for her installations and artist books; she is also an associate professor of graphic design at the Oslo Academy of the Arts.  


The exhibition, Printed Works: Adaptations of Virginia Woolf, will combine Thon Knutsen’s skills in letterpress printing and graphic design to bring an installation that will enfold visitors into the world and words of author Virginia Woolf. The exhibit will culminate with the 32nd annual international conference in Woolf’s honor, hosted by FGCU’s Department of Language and Literature from June 8-11, 2023.    


Printed Works: Adaptations of Virginia Woolf will be on display in the University Archives and Special Collections on the third floor of the Wilson G. Bradshaw Library from February 24 through June 12, 2023. The gallery will be open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.    


Please join us for wine and hors d'oeuvres at the opening reception on Thursday, February 23 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to engage with artist Ane Thon Knutsen and discuss her work.
