CALL FOR ART
A Reader's Art 8: handmade with care
Readers Art, at Susan Hensel Gallery in South Minneapolis, is approaching venerable in its longevity. Started in East Lansing, Michigan, as a small Midwest show eight years ago, it has grown to become a wide ranging show that pulls in work from coast to coast. Each year the show has a loose theme. More like a suggestion, states director and curator Susan Hensel. The themes have been geographical, sculptural, political, frugal.
This year artists are asked to submit books/bookobjects that have the emphasis on the mark of the hand, with special weight given to submissions using handmade paper. I will be showing a few artists in greater depth. Send up to 10 jpgs or slides for consideration by January 30, 2008.
2-d and 3-d are welcome.
All media welcome, all approaches, even installation and performance. Editions or one of a kind books and book objects or book referential work. I am always willing to expand the reaches of book art to the edges of the known universe and beyond.
