Deadline August 13th: ‘Uncommon Threads: Handicrafts in Book Arts’ Artist Book Call for Entries

23 Sandy Gallery
Call for Entries: Uncommon Threads: Handicrafts in Book Arts

Deadline: Saturday, August 13, 2011

Fee: $25 for up to 3 works with no more than 3 images per piece of work.
Exhibition dates: September 23 to October 29, 2011

“One of the best aspects of working in the field of book and paper arts is the chance to work with such varied artistic materials and techniques—even traditional handicraft techniques. Think of knitting, embroidery, sewing, beading, felting, needlework, stitching, quilting and any other myriad possibilities. Combine these techniques or materials with a strong concept, meaningful content, a story to tell or a compelling narrative and we have a new era in the book and paper arts.

This exhibit is open to hand crafted book and paper arts related works created as either edition or one-of-a-kind. Artist books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, zines, broadsides and sculptural pieces are all encouraged. Any medium, any style, any size.”
