Taos Fiber Marketplace

Two Deadlines: (RECEIVE)
Early bird: October 15, 2012
Final deadline: January 15, 2013

Call for Vendors
Taos Fiber Marketplace

Taos Convention Center
Taos, NM
April 19-21, 2013

Taos and the surrounding villages, is known for being a "fiber" destination. In keeping with this tradition, the Taos Fiber Marketplace offers the best of many fiber festivals, with a New Mexico flair.

There are three main areas in the Taos Convention Center space: a vendor marketplace that will feature all types of supplies for the fiber artist; free demos and clinics sponsored by a variety of fiber artists; and a large social space where attendees can and sit, knit, spin, weave and share their tips and ideas with like-minded fiber artists.

The Vendor Marketplace may have up to 75 booths available, with the balance being allocated to the demo/clinic area. Most booths are 8'x10', a few are 10'x10' and one is 8'x8'. Vendors in this marketplace will be juried for the purpose of bringing the widest variety of fiber supplies to the market. Preference will be given for those vendors willing to travel from long distances and those that have show experience in the past. Finished goods will be allowed as display items. Tools, books, equipment, yarn, fibers, etc. are all acceptable for the fiber artist needs.

Vendors in the demo / clinic area in the front portion of the Rio Grande Hall (next to the social area) have booths that are approximately the same size as those in the marketplace. The main difference is that these vendors can sell finished goods, market their business or studio, conduct one-on-one training to anyone interested, etc. The one requirement is that they must demo their work or have hands-on clinics. As part of the jury process, these vendors may indicate if they will only have photos and documentation to describe how their work is made.

All vendors must bring their own display items. Taos Fiber Marketplace will not be "poling and draping" the booths. Tables, chairs, electricity and tablecloths are available as indicated on the vendor application.

Entries will be juried and accepted as they are submitted.

All new vendors (that we have not already met) must submit sufficient photos and information to document what they will be bringing or doing. A substantial web presence may be sufficient to offset the need for photos.

The vendor mix will be balanced to provide the greatest diversity and experience to the market goers.

The entire marketplace is open to the public free of charge. The large portion of the booth fees will be earmarked for advertising the event. Checks and credit cards will not be processed until the vendor is accepted into one category or another.

A full colour printed catalogue will be produced and will depict selected works, as well as descriptions of work and biographical statements by each artist.

23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present Infinite Possibilities, a juried exhibition of book art inspired by the world of math and science, real or imagined.

THEME: By those in the know, meaning those left-brained, analytical types, math and science are often described in artistic terms: the eloquence of an equation, the beauty of a concept. Infinite Possibilities looks at the opposite: how math and science can be used artistically to inspire book artists to think creatively about such topics. We are looking for book art works that incorporate mechanical and theoretical concepts, from serious to humorous exploring subjects ranging from math, science to medicine, space, architecture, engineering, physics, genetics and more.

MEDIA: This exhibit is open to 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.

ENTRIES - A maximum of three works may be submitted per artist. Entries must be received online no later than midnight on SEPTEMBER 28, 2012. Artists submitting to this exhibition will be notified via email.

FEES - A $25 non-refundable entry fee covers up to three works and is payable upon submission.

INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS - Artists residing outside of the United States are welcome to enter this exhibition. The exhibition entry fee of $25 must be paid in US funds.

JURYING: This show will be juried by Laura Russell, the owner of 23 Sandy Gallery and by our guest co-juror Dina Scheel, a Bay-area book artist and collector.

AWARDS: Three artists will receive Best of Show Awards, which will include a special online portfolio and marketing campaign focusing on their work. All award winners will also be highlighted on the online catalog. Best of Show winners are selected upon installation of the show.

In addition, we will also award the Librarian's Choice Purchase Prize, which will be awarded based on ballots cast by our library and museum customers. The winning work or works will be purchased by the gallery and donated to our randomly selected voting libraries.

Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program

Deadline: January 22, 2013 (RECEIVE) or (HAND DELIVERY)

Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program
Jaffe Center for Book Arts

Wimberly Library
Florida Atlantic University
Boca Raton, FL
Fall 2013

The Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program funds two working residencies for artists each academic year at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, in the fall and spring semesters. Artists working in the book arts (and other media, too, as long as the creative project can be thought of as book arts related) are encouraged to apply for this prestigious and competitive award. We accept applications from artists from all over the world.

Poet and artist Helen M. Salzberg established the Salzberg AIR Program in 2011. Income from this endowed fund enables artists working in the book arts to come to the Jaffe Center on a semester basis to work and teach at the center. While here, the artist will produce a creative project using JCBA studios and also teach a workshop for FAU students and the general public and mentor FAU students as his or her schedule allows. The Salzberg AIR Program gives our students the opportunity to work alongside highly talented and creative book artists.

Two residencies will be awarded each academic year: one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester. The Artist in Residence (AIR) selected each semester will get his or her own office at JCBA and full use of the JCBA studios (papermaking, letterpress and book studios). The artist's residency will last for 12 weeks, though shorter or longer residencies may be accommodated as needed. In the application process, if an artist has a particularly ambitious creative project in mind, the artist may apply for a residency that would encompass two semesters. Should the two-semester residency be awarded in this case, the artist would be expected to teach one workshop in each semester.

The AIR receives a stipend of $5,000 for the semester. The artist is responsible for transportation, housing, parking, meals and materials for his or her creative project. JCBA will provide materials for workshops.

Artists who wish to compete for consideration for this prestigious opportunity must submit their application and support materials for review by a JCBA panel comprised of book artists and book arts enthusiasts. Your application packet must be submitted via post or delivered in person to JCBA and should include the following:

1. Completed application, or suitable cover letter that supplies the same information requested on the application.
2. Brief narrative of the creative project you envision.
3. Brief narrative of the workshop you would like to teach.
4. Current resume.
5. Any support materials you care to include: we welcome images of your work, sketches for the creative project, video... be creative and have fun.

All applications will be weighed equally by our panel.
