2015 Calls for Entries
Call for Entries I: HELLO HEDI
On view in the gallery: June 5 - July 25, 2015
Deadline for submissions: March 28, 2015
23 Sandy hosts two international juried exhibitions each year. Our first for 2015 will be titled HELLO HEDI. For this exciting exhibition we are seeking artist books inspired by the myriad structures invented by Hedi Kyle. She is a force in the book arts field, inventing inspiring structures such as the flag book, blizzard book, fishbone fold, pivoting panel book and many others. But, keep in mind, this is just not a structure show. We are looking for works that honor Hedi’s paper transformations with smart stories, strong concepts, focused contexts and excellent craftsmanship.
Call for Entries II: Blood QuantumOn view in the gallery November 6 - December 19, 2015
Deadline for submissions: August 15, 2015
Our second juried show of 2015 will be titled Blood Quantum, a concept that refers to the degree of ancestry for an individual of a specific racial or ethnic group such as Native Americans. This concept got us thinking about our ancestry, our history and our personal cultural narrative. We are seeking book and paper arts exploring these histories, real or fictional.
