Sunday morning musings and an opportunity to show your work…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 11:35 am

Good morning readers…

I have updated the tutorial links page with a few more links this morning. I have also created a page for places that offer learning opportunities in the book arts. Both of these pages are works in progress. I’ll be adding to them regularly.

I’ve also updated my page on books and DVD’s available on bookbinding.

Of note…

Check out the site of Peter Baumgartner. He has a new video out on bookbinding which you can get on DVD or view for free online. He also has a book out which is great for beginners.

I posted this weeks challenge theme over on the Flickr site. You should definitely go over and check out what folks are making in response to the challenges.

The Suffolk Art League and the Suffolk Museum in Suffolk, Virginia are hosting an exhibit this spring entitled “Beyond Reading: Books As Art”.

From the prospectus, “We are looking for artists that create traditional handmade books, as well as artists that create altered booksAltered books, by definition, are any books - old or new - that have been recycled by creative means into works of art. Additionally, we are looking for each artists’ own interpretation of this theme, so our submission parameters are very broad.

We have several east coast artists committed to this exhibit. We are still looking for artists who work in this genre, or who are willing to create their version of Books As Art.

The Suffolk Museum is included in Suffolk’s tour during Virginia’s Garden Week (April 25), and will be opening this exhibit in conjunction with other venues reflecting our overall theme of Beyond Reading”.

If you are interested inparticipating you must RSVP by March 25, 2008 to be included in the show. This is a great opportunity to get your work shown. I would love to see a group of my readers participate. You can download the full prospectus here.

I hope everyone has a great day!
