      Wow, it's hard to believe how time flies! Only one month away for the
      deadline for The Assignment. Hope you can join the fun.


      The Assignment

      Meeting of the College Book Art Association in Portland, Oregon

      THEME - 23 Sandy Gallery and the College Book Art Association (CBAA)

      invite you to submit work to The Assignment, a juried book arts

      exhibition held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the CBAA in

      Portland, Oregon. To illuminate the conference's focus on book arts

      teaching practice and pedagogy, this exhibition will feature work

      created by member artists generated directly from course assignments

      or from those assignments we generate for ourselves. Work accepted

      into the show will be exhibited alongside a written description of

      the assignment. Non-members are welcome to submit work if they pay

      the membership fee on top of the entry fee. Entries deadline is

      October 24, 2009.

      MEDIA - This exhibit is open to book arts related artworks created as

      either edition or one-of-a-kind. Artist books, sculptural books, book

      objects, altered books, zines or broadsides are encouraged. Any

      medium, any style, any size.

      JURORS - The Assignment will be juried by Macy Chadwick and Clifton

      Meador. Macy Chadwick is an instructor at Academy of Art University

      in San Francisco, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the San

      Francisco Center for the Book. She is also the proprietress of In

      Cahoots Press, Oakland, California. Clifton Meador is associate

      professor and director of the M.F.A. program in book and paper at

      Columbia College in Chicago. He is also the editor of the Journal of

      Artist Books.

      CASH PRIZES & AWARDS - One book will be awarded the "Purchase Prize"

      and will be purchased and donated to the John Wilson Special

      Collection Room at the Multnomah County Library in Portland. Other

      honorary and cash awards will be given by the CBAA. Those awards have

      yet to be determined, but stay tuned. We'll post them on the web site soon.
