The Printed Page Opening, Trunkshows & Arcadia's 4th Birthday!

Please join us for our Fourth Birthday Party! As well as our Fall Art Opening Reception & Trunkshows!

Help us celebrate 4 years in Nolibs with trunkshow featuring two of our favorite local designers: Duke & Winston Clothing and Sultana Maria Jewelry, and the opening of our Fall Art Exhibition curated by Gretchen Diehl.

About The Printed Page:
The Printed Page is a show of work inspired by, influenced by, or created in the image of a physical book. The show will combine 2D and 3D work which is reminiscent of illustrations from literature, or somehow showcases the experience of reading a good book.

No matter how virtual our lives become, no matter how steeped in the breif and fleeting moments of connectivity we find ourselves, we will never lose our affinity for the printed page. As the barrage of screens fatigue our collective eyes we turn to pictures, ink and storytelling to revive them. We carry out what is necessary within the wires, but we truly experience life when nestled neatly within the pages of a good book.

About our Trunk Shows:
Duke & Winston launched in mid 2009 by Seun Olubodun and his English Bulldog, HRH the Duke. Duke & Winston is a Philadelphia based clothing line that creates casual clothing for guys who favor substance, refinement and practicality above the flashy and sometimes downright barbaric styles that have flooded the men's market of recent (no oversized prints of skulls & crosses, tigers with skull faces or skull faced tigers riding unicorns thank you very much).

Sultana Maria Jewelry offers a steampunk line of jewelry made with new oxidized chain, vintage pieces, and a variety of found natural objects. Along with a steampunk charm and chain line, a higher end metals work line is also available. Her metals work is bold and organic making a statement to whoever wears it. Every piece is handmade by Sultana and unique in its own way.

As always drinks & snacks will be served!

Tunes provided by our favorite djs: John Madden Sex Tape!
