Broadsided! The Intersection of Art and Literature

October 2-31, 2009 at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon

Before books, before blogs and before mass media, there were broadsides.
Historically, broadsheet posters were ephemeral in nature: often political
or editorial proclamations or even advertising. Today, broadsides hang at
the intersection of art and literature. Letterpress printed broadsides are
valued as graphic fine art designed and printed by a true craftsperson; but
also as fine literature featuring poetry or prose.

This exhibit is open to all letterpress printed broadsides. At least one
element of the broadside must be letterpress printed and may be combined
with any other artistic medium. The work may be created in whole by the
artist or in collaboration with others. Broadsides will be judged on overall
design, typography, cohesiveness of text and image as well as the level of
craft and production quality. One broadside chosen by the jurors will be
awarded a Best of Show Award with a cash prize of $300 and a solo show in
the book room at 23 Sandy at a future date.

Entry deadline is September 1, 2009. Complete entry information and online
entry form can be found here:
