Congratulations SACRED | PROFANE Award Winners!

Congratulations SACRED | PROFANE Award Winners!

23 Sandy Gallery is thrilled to announce four awards for our current exhibition, SACRED | PROFANE. This lively, compelling, deep and sometimes controversial exhibition of book art focusing on religion and spirituality features 57 works by 51 artists from across the United States and from far away as Gran Canaria.

SACRED | PROFANE was juried by Jim Carmin, who has directed the operations of the John Wilson Special Collections at Multnomah County Library since 1998. He also had the very though job of choosing only four award winners from those 57 very worthy works. While the process to jury the show was done blindly, from digital entries, the awards were selected from the actual books in the gallery.

We are pleased to announce three Best of Show Awards plus one Purchase Prize Award. Our purchase prize book, The Dreamer's Room by Anita Bigelow will be purchased by the gallery and donated to Jim's collection at the Multnomah County Library.

Congratulations SACRED | PROFANE Award Winners! 

Best of Show: Apparitions Among Us by Louise Cabeen

Best of Show: Time by Shireen Holman 

Best of Show: I Observe These Sacred Rites by Dr. Bob Pliny

Purchase Prize: The Dreamer’s Room by Anita Bigelow

SACRED | PROFANE will be on view in the gallery through December 20, 2014.

Stop by soon!
