Last Minute Reminder for Book Power


Book Power! Artist Books Addressing Our Social, Political or Environmental World

June 3-26, 2010
23 Sandy Gallery
Portland, Oregon

THEME – Book Power is seeking artist books addressing the social, political or environmental issues of our times. Can an artist book be a vehicle to shed light on the problems we face in the world? Can books be a call for change? Can we go beyond just artists who make things to artists who make things happen? War, poverty, decay, politics, conflict, revolution, feminism, environmental, economic and political upheaval are but a few of the issues that concerned book artists can use to engage their readers in an effort to raise consciousness, call for justice or provoke action. Perhaps we really can use our creative powers to solve the problems of the world.

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.

DEADLINE – Entries must be received by May 14, 2010.

Happy creating!
