Call for Entry Details• Loveland, Colorado
Deadline: December 29, 2019
The book has long been treasured as a literary work of art, but it is often forgotten in the realm of visual art. Book arts have been around as long as humanity has been writing and reading, but within the last couple of decades, the book arts have become increasingly diverse and innovative. The Loveland Artists Collective has been invited to show this group exhibition at Artworks, which is the largest Studio Artist Community in Northern Colorado dedicated to advancing the contemporary arts and visual artists. (click here for more info on Artworks).
Artists will be on display in the South Gallery at Artworks in downtown Loveland from February 14th - March 28th. This exhibit will be promoted and included in the Loveland Sweetheart Festival, which occurs February 14-16, 2020. The festival is expected to bring 35,000 visitors along with the normal foot traffic Loveland receives during this important month.
The call includes both 2D and 3D works of art that range in size from small,handmade books to floor to ceiling book art installations. Our goal in this exhibition is to show the diversity of book arts and all the ways that one small cultural element (the book) can inspire myriad artworks and create a very real bridge between the literary and visual arts.
Our juror for this show is Mervi Hjelmroos-Koski, Ph.D., D.Sc., Manager of School of Botanical Art & Illustration with the Denver Botanic Gardens. Mervi’s background is in traditional bookbinding.Venue Info:
