23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present EcoEditions, an international juried exhibition of contemporary artist books focusing on the environment. EcoEditions seeks to confirm that books can save the world. Artist books raise consciousness, create awareness and change thinking. We invited book artists to use their powers as stewards of the earth to report on the state of our environment, ecology, sustainability, pollution, climate, recycling and our planet in general.

EcoEditions is accompanied by a full color print catalog.

Cara received her MFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she worked and exhibited for a number of years, before getting a Masters in Information Science at the University of Michigan.
