April 7 – May 27, 2017
23 Sandy Gallery is calling for submissions for BUILT: Book art as a context to explore architecture, design, the built world, the built book. This international juried exhibition of book and paper art aims to examine the relationship between contemporary book art practices and architecture, engineering, landscape and construction as form, function and structure. Let’s re-image the ways we as designers, of either books or buildings can inhabit and shape the world around us. Our disciplines have a natural synergy. After all, books and buildings are both kinetic, sequential, structural and time based. Taken a step further, book art can provide a framework for topics like urbanism, town planning, buildings and space.
Let’s examine the relationship between the built and the book. This exhibit is open to handmade book and paper arts related works created as either edition or one-of-a- kind. Artist books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, zines, and broadsides are all encouraged.
The gallery will award $500 in purchase prizes, plus three best of show awards. 23 Sandy Gallery is a fine art gallery located in Portland, Oregon. Open since 2007, we present local and national artists working in contemporary book and paper arts.
A full prospectus and call for entries for BUILT can be found at 23sandy.com/built/call-for-entries.html
Deadline for submissions is January 7, 2017.
