The Center for Book Arts: 2010 ARTIST MEMBERS EXHIBITION

Deadline: April 26, 2010 (RECEIVE)

The Center for Book Arts
New York, NY
July 7, 2010 to September 11, 2010

The Center for Book Arts is pleased to invite Artist Members to submit artworks created between 2006 and 2010 to be considered for the 2010 Artist Members Exhibition tentatively titled: I’ll cut thru: Pochoirs, Carvings, and Other Cuttings.

The exhibition is to be organized by Amber McMillan, Artist and CBA Instructor, and Alexander Campos, CBA’s Executive Director.

This exhibition, featuring current members of CBA’s artistic community, will focus on how the art of cutting: pochoir (stenciling), relief printing, paper cutting, and other related techniques are used to convey content, form, text, and image. Artworks featured in this exhibition will represent a broad range of book and related arts, including but not limited to books, prints, woodblocks, linocuts, rubber stamps, sculpture, mixed-media installation, film and video, and performance art. Approximately thirty works will be chosen for display in the Center for Book Art’s auxiliary gallery space. Artist members of the Center for Book Arts are encouraged to submit works to be selected by the show’s curator, and the selections will be augmented by works by non-member artists to enhance the scope of the exhibition.

We encourage artists to submit more than one work to be reviewed. Artists are invited to submit as many works via CD-ROMS (no original artwork) for review as they wish, up to 12 images in total. All images must be properly labeled and accompanied by an image list with name, title, year created, dimensions, medium/materials, and credited properly (authors, collector, etc.)

Application for membership may be made with submission of exhibition materials. All artists are welcome to apply for artist membership. One does not have to be a book artist to apply for artist membership rather one must have created work related to the medium of book arts.
