23 Sandy Gallery is calling for submissions for WAYFINDERS: a juried exhibition of book and paper art.
Maps are beautiful works of art. In today’s digital age, where we all have a map on our phone, paper maps are in danger of becoming quaint relics. We all remember pouring over an atlas or globe when you were young, dreaming of far off locations. Let’s explore book art with inspiration from maps, atlases, cartography, navigation, pathways—real or imagined. Maps can also be internal, showing how to get from one emotional, conceptual or spiritual place to another. Map your journey through this inspiring world of book art.
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.
Deadline for submissions is July 29, 2017.
