Sense and Sensuality: A Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Artist Books
June 27 – July 28, 2007
23 Sandy Gallery, Portland, Oregon

THEME - The theme for this exhibition is “Sense and Sensuality,” and is open to very broad interpretations for the book arts. Perhaps artworks that celebrate the five human senses or the joy of sex, or the sensuality of a flower. Be bold. Artworks with adult content will be welcomed. Let’s have some fun and push some boundaries.

MEDIA - This exhibit is open to book arts related artworks created as either edition or one-of-a-kind. Artist books, sculptural books, book objects, zines or broadsides are encouraged. Any medium, any style.

JURORS - This exhibit will be juried by Jim Carmin who has been the John Wilson Special Collections Librarian at Multnomah County Library, Portland, Oregon, since 1998. Having degrees in fine arts, and art history, he brings a hands-on knowledge of printing and binding to his work as a curator of rare books where, in addition to developing his library’s special collections with contemporary book arts, among other areas, he regularly curates exhibitions focusing primarily on literary arts and book arts. And by, Laura Russell, the owner of 23 Sandy Gallery.

PURCHASE PRIZE - One artwork chosen by the jurors will be awarded the purchase prize. That work will be purchased and donated to the artist book collection at John Wilson Special Collections at the Multnomah County Library.

23 SANDY GALLERY is a new art Gallery opening in Portland, Oregon on April 5, 2007. The Gallery will present local and national artists working in contemporary photography, book arts and other related graphic arts. The Gallery is owned by book artist and photographer Laura Russell. See www.23sandy.com.

FOCUS ON BOOK ARTS CONFERENCE - The timing of this exhibition coincides with (but is unaffiliated with) the Focus on Book Arts Conference that takes place in Forest Grove June 28 to July 1, 2007. Find out more about the conference at www.focusonbookarts.org.
