Re: [BKARTS] Call for entries: 7th North American Juried Book Arts Exhibit at Bright Hill
CALL FOR ENTRIES - JURIED BOOK ARTS EXHIBIT
Dear Book Artists,
Bright Hill Literary Center in Treadwell, NY,
announces a call for its 7th Annual Americas Juried
Book Arts Exhibit. The exhibit will take place from
October 5 - 31 in the Center's Word & Image Gallery.
Books submitted to the 7th Annual Book Arts
Exhibit should contain both words & images in a book format.
Jurors are looking for a clearly stated concept,
thought-provoking text, engaging visual presentation, the
relationship of the words and images to each other,
exceptional technical presentation, an imaginative approach,
and an integrated overall delivery of the message. Two books
will be selected for special recognition, in the form
of Best of Show ($200 cash award)and Second Place $100 cash award).
There will be a show catalog, and each accepted artist
will receive one complimentary copy.
Entries, which must be postmarked no later than August 11, 2008,
will be judged by IMAGES ON CDS. Entries will be limited to
three artists' books (traditionally-bound books, artists' books,
sculptural book works, hanging books, etc; books must have been created in
the period 2004-2008 and must never have been exhibited at Bright Hill
Literary Center in Treadwell, New York). Each book entered may be
represented on the CD by three views. If the books are accepted and are
designed to be hung, artist must provide them ready to hang; if flat, they
will be displayed on pedestals. Entries will be limited
to books created by artists residing in the Americas.
