    Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) seeks submissions for the upcoming event, New Editions in MCBA’s Main Gallery on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19, 2019.

    MCBA is a visual arts nonprofit organization that supports creative expression through traditional and contemporary book arts, including papermaking, bookbinding, and letterpress printing. MCBA’s philosophy and artistic vision challenges its artist community to think beyond the traditional notion of the “book.” Today, books can be bound and unbound, fabricated into sculptures, interpreted as metaphor, experienced as installation or performance, and interacted with virtually. What unites this varied work is a focus on the interdisciplinary expression of narrative.

    New Editions is an annual, two-day celebration of new artist book publications, featuring local and international artist books, photo books, chapbooks, zines, broadsides, and hand printed work. New Editions offers something for everyone, from seasoned collectors to new enthusiasts, with items listed at a variety of price points.

    Application and information can be found HERE.

    University of Utah

    October 4 & 5

    Join type aficionado and daredevil printer Jessica Spring for two fantastical days of play at the press! With death-defying skill and precision, Jessica walks the tightrope of letterpress lock-up mastery. With the aid of circular and angle quads, tools from art supply and hardware stores, and daredevil furniture (laser-cut furniture designed to compose type in circles, curves, and angles), the class becomes part of balancing act. Participants design thaumatropes and volvelles that tease the eye and tickle every fancy. Accept the challenge to move beyond straight lines and right angles, reach extraordinary new heights on the press, and leave with a set of circular paper toys to delight people of all ages!

    “May You Live in Interesting Times”
    A Book as Art Juried Exhibition

    https://nau.edu/artmuseum/prospectus/

    The Northern Arizona University Art Museum announces a juried exhibition to be mounted in Spring of 2020. Open from February 4 until April 4, the exhibition, titled “May You Live in Interesting Times,” will present new works conceived within the conceptual category of the Book as Art, including Altered Books. The Museum invites submissions on significant themes derived from the issues we face here and around the world, including, but not limited to, environmental challenges, politics, immigration, race, and nationalism.

    Our 2020 exhibition will embrace widely varying conceptions of the “book” created in an equally diverse range of media. The Museum is producing this event in the firm belief that, in the age of virtual media, there is still a profoundly powerful effect to be drawn from prolonged interaction with a physical artifact in a “screen-free” environment.
