Dear Book Artists,
Bright Hill Literary Center in Treadwell, NY, announces a call for its
6th North American Juried Book Arts Exhibit. The exhibit will take place
from October 7 - 31 in the Center's Word & Image Gallery.
Books submitted to the 6th Anniversary BHP Book Arts Exhibit should
contain both words & images in a book format. Jurors Karen Hanmer & Bertha
Rogers 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).
Entries, which must be postmarked no later than August 17, 2007, 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 2003-2007 and must
never have been exhibited at Bright Hill 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 North America.
