"MCBA / Jerome Foundation Book Arts Mentorship Series VII”

Applications are now being accepted for MCBA / Jerome Foundation Book Arts Mentorship Series VII. Please read all eligibility and application guidelines carefully.

Application Guideline Information: MCBA_Information.pdf

The Book Arts Mentorship is an artist development program aimed at introducing book arts to emerging artists whose primary medium is in another discipline. There are many reasons to explore book arts as a new artistic medium. As a highly malleable and versatile form of expression, book arts extend the possibilities of other art forms. You can create a conceptual space. Experiment with sequence and visual or verbal narrative. Use book art forms to extend, explore, document or reexamine work produced in other artistic disciplines.

Since 1985, the Jerome Foundation has helped artists push the boundaries of contemporary book arts by supporting the creation of new work. Book arts projects funded by thirteen series of Fellowships and four prior series of Mentorships range from exquisitely crafted fine press volumes and sculptural books to documented performances and one-of-a-kind installations that “break the bindings” and redefine conventional notions of book form.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, September 4, 2018; 11:59 pm

Call for Entries:  Matrices in Making
Friends of Dard Hunter & American Printing History Association 2018 Member’s Exhibition

In conjunction with the joint FDH/APHA Conference: Matrices: the Social Life of Paper, Print, and Art, FDH and APHA invite artists to submit entries to the 2018 Member’s Exhibition. Our theme is Matrices—matrices in art, in making, in research, in invention and innovation. 


  1. Something within or from which something else originates, develops, or takes form
  2. A mold from which a relief surface is made
  3. The natural material in which something is embedded
  4. The extracellular substance in which tissue cells are embedded
  5. something resembling a mathematical matrix especially in rectangular arrangement of elements into  rows and columns

As the array of definitions applied to matrix implies, a wealth of approaches beckon; a framework, a housing, a social construct. We seek made objects of all sorts; artworks, craftworks, or other means of making such as innovative tools.
