Art of the Book 4
August 25th, through October 7th, 2012
The fourth Art of the Book exhibit will be held this year from August 25th to
October 7th. This year the Artist Union Gallery will exhibit the show at the beautiful former K. B. Roberts building at 89 S. California Street in Ventura. This
has been made possible by the Henning By-Pass Trust .
Curator: In�s Mongui�
Juror: Elena Mary Siff
All and any artist books in any material and any format will be considered.
In past exhibits, artists have shown books from miniscule limited editions to
installation-size work. Materials thus far have included canvas, wood, cloth, Tyvek, Plexiglas, metal, clay, organic materials, stone, coffee filters, video, and of course, paper. Content has ranged from travel journals, through abstracts with no text, to �The Invisible Man.� There have been books encased in handmade paper, and �censorable� books with pages that could not be opened. There are few restrictions, and that is what makes book art such an interesting genre.
In addition to book art, the exhibit will include two-dimensional art that features text as an integral part of the work. Poems in broadsheet form have been accepted, as well as paintings and prints with poetry or text that is meant to be read in the context of the piece.
Intake: Monday, August 20th from 4 to 7pm
Tuesday August 21st from 9am to 12 noon
End of exhibit pick-up: Monday, October 8th from 4 to 7pm
NOTE: Books may be mailed, with a return postage paid/self-addressed mailing label, but must be available to the juror no later than 8/21/12 at noon.
