The Kalamazoo Book Arts Center announces a call to artists for the non-juried exhibition Altered Books – Altered Worlds which will be held in the KBAC Gallery June 5 through July 31, 2015. Open to all emerging and established artists, the exhibition focuses on books, usually so familiar and predictable, in different and re-imagined forms. All media, variations, and interpretations of altered books will be accepted and included in the exhibition. There is a $15 entry fee to participate. Click here for more details on how to enter and the entry form.
Altered Books – Altered Worlds will run concurrently with Adaptation: Transforming Books into Art at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. This juried exhibition will showcase the work of 17 internationally known artists in the altered book genre.
These two unique and inspiring exhibitions will allow visitors to see the work of an exceptionally large and talented group of book artists.
