23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present BUILT, an international juried exhibition of book and paper art examining the relationship between contemporary book art practices and architecture, engineering, landscape and construction as form, function and structure.

Book artists took this opportunity to re-imagine the ways we as designers, of either books or buildings can inhabit and shape the world around us. Our disciplines have a natural synergy. After all, books and buildings are both kinetic, sequential, structural and time based. Taken a step further, book art can provide a framework for topics like urbanism, town planning, buildings and space. BUILT examines the relationship between the built and the book. 

BUILT features the following artists: James Allen, Jo Andersen, Amy Arnold, Charlene Asato, Alicia Bailey, Angela Batchelor, Carol Chase Bjerke, Carli Boisjolie, Servane Briand, Wade Brickhouse, R D Burton, Susan Collard, Guylaine Couture, Jan Dove, Mari Eckstein Gower, Margot Fagan, Jennifer Farrell, Susan Fichter, Christiane Grauert, Frances Hunter, Edwin Jager, Sarah Klein, Sammy Lee, Macey Ley, Erin Mickelson, Zea Morvitz, Don Myhre, Lesley Patterson-Marx, Sumi Perera, Dr. Bob Pliny, John Retallack, Janet Reynolds, Matthew Rieck, Carolyn Shattuck, Lynn Skordal, Emma Sovich, Jessica Spring, Marilyn Stablein, Barbara  Strigel, Laurie Strong, Erin Sweeney, Nikki Thompson, Christine Trexel, Elsi Vassdal Ellis, Amanda Watson-Will, Bill Westheimer, Eileen White, Thomas Parker Williams, Nina Eve Zeininger.
