Pyramid Atlantic Art Center presents the 13th Biennial Book Arts Fair and Conference, the preeminent book arts event on the east coast. Now in its third decade, the fair now includes contemporary printmaking. The fair will showcase a dynamic array of innovative artists’ books, limited edition prints, fine papers, and specialty tools along with a rich array of notable speakers, surrounding events, and demonstrations. This three day event will connect international artists, scholars, collectors, publishers, art lovers, and inspire all who are intrigued with the printed form and the book as art. Book artists, print-makers, paper makers, fine printers, book and print publishers, fine booksellers, and tool makers are invited to apply for a booth at the fair.

This year’s theme, Outside the Margin Focuses on book art and contemporary prints that explore outer edges of the mediums. Our new venue in a former WWII factory enriches this motif. Outfitted for large-scale photoshoots, the eclectic Photogroup studio is next door to a new brewery, local gourmet ice cream and a short walk to Pyramid Atlantic.

Booths/Spaces: The booth space fee includes one 2.5′x 6′ table and two chairs. Artists are responsible for display equipment and lighting. Double booth spaces are also available on a limited basis. Artists may share a space with another artist or apply as a collective. All artists must be represented on the application.

• 6′ x 8′ booth space – $300
• Two booth spaces for $550 (adjacent to one another)
• Three booth spaces for $800 (adjacent to one another)

Pyramid Atlantic will provide:
• artist relief/booth sitting
