[BKARTS] THE 6th ANNUAL BOOK ARTS JAM at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California will take place Saturday OCTOBER 20, 2007

The Annual Book Arts Jam at Foothill College provides an inside look at the
world of artists' books and the book arts. The Book Arts Jam is a one-day
celebration at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California at which you
can view one-of-a-kind handmade artist books, zines, letterpress books and
broadsides, mailart, calligraphy, fine art prints, handmade paper and
multiples by over 50 exhibitors who are book artists, craftspeople, and
workers in the allied fields of letterpress printing, papermaking,
printmaking, photography, collage, and paper decoration.  The intent of the
Book Arts Jam is to bring together book artists and audiences interested in
the book arts to create a forum for artists to show and sell their work, and
for visitors of all kinds-including book arts fans and artists as well as
audiences new to book arts-to see the work of others and learn about the
book arts.

An important part of this one-day festival includes public demonstrations by
artists and artisans of variety of book arts skills--including craft binding
and book finishing, calligraphy, printmaking, letterpress printing, and
more.  Attendees will join us for a "behind-the-scenes" look at the creative
processes, tools, and techniques that are used by book artists. The jam will
encourage visitors to learn, explore and create through demonstrations,
hands-on projects, and displays. The Book Arts Jam is sponsored by Bay Area
Book Artists and Foothill College, and funded in part by a grant from Arts
Council Silicon Valley, in partnership with the County of Santa Clara and
the California Arts Council.

The Book Arts Jam provides a mini-open studio for book artists to show and
sell their work, to see the work of others and to educate visitors about the
book arts.  In addition to having a table to show and sell your wares, we
invite all exhibitors to participate in a Virtual Exhibition slide show/CD
that celebrates the work of Bay Area book artists and disseminates their
work to an interested audience.  The 6th annual Book Arts Jam will be held
in the newly constructed Campus Center on the Foothill College Campus.
Loading/unloading should be a very streamlined process compared to the last
two years when we held the Book Arts Jam in the Fine Arts Patio area at
Foothill College.  There will be one huge room with individual exhibitor
tables, with side rooms for demonstrations and additional activities.  In
2006, we had more than 500 visitors to the Book Arts Jam.  Join us for this
vibrant event!  It just gets better and better, thanks to our great
exhibitors and volunteers.
