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. 
Karen Hanmer is a Chicago book and installation artist whose intimate, 
playful work fragments and layers text and image to mirror the experience of 
personal and cultural memory. She exhibits widely, and her work is included 
in collections ranging from the New York Public Library and Tate Britain to 
UCLA and Graceland. Hanmer holds a degree in Economics from Northwestern 
University, and has studied at Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and 
Paper Arts and with several notable fine binders. She is Exhibitions Chair 
for the Guild of Book Workers, and serves on the editorial board of The 
Bonefolder, a peer-reviewed online book arts journal. A complete catalog of 
her work is available online at 
Bertha Rogers has read, lectured about, and taught writing and fine 
and applied arts to children, adults, and teachers for 35 years. Her two- 
and three-dimensional art has been shown in more than 200 juried and solo 
exhibitions throughout the US and abroad. Her awards include fellowships to 
the MacDowell, Millay, Hedgebrook, Caldera, and Hawthornden artists? 
colonies, and a Ludwig Vogelstein grant for her interdisciplinary exhibit 
and book, "Even the Hemlock: Poems, Reliquaries, & Illuminations." 
Her "Bears" book is currently on view at Syracuse University Library and 
online at http://library.syr.edu/digital/exhibits/c/cnybookarts/Rogers.htm

15th year.
