The Kalamazoo Book Arts Center (KBAC) announces a call to artists for the non-juried exhibition “The Illustrated Accordion,” which will be held in the KBAC Gallery, May 5, 2017. Open to all emerging and established artists, this 9Th annual exhibition focuses on books created in the accordion form. All media, variations, and interpretations of this style of book will be accepted and included in the exhibition.
There is a $15 entry fee to participate.
Artists are limited to one entry for the exhibit.
Entries must be received by Monday, April 24 at 5 p.m.
Books should be hand delivered or mailed in a padded envelope to the KBAC.
Include another self-addressed envelope of equal size, affixed with adequate postage, for return of work after the exhibit. Include a check made out to the KBAC for $15 for the entry fee. Please contact us by phone or email for directions for international submissions. Books without envelopes and sufficient postage may not be returned.
All books must be ready for display on a shelf or sculpture stand that we provide, or hung from the wall (please include hardware and hanging instructions, if necessary.) Although care will be taken in the handling and display of the work, the KBAC is not responsible for loss, damage, or theft of the books during transit and exhibition. The KBAC reserves the right to reproduce images of submitted work for publicity purposes. A 20% commission will be charged for all sales made through the KBAC Gallery.
The opening for the exhibition will be May 5th, from 6:00–9:00 p.m., in conjunction with Art Hop. Works will be returned by mail, or available for pick up, after May 26.
