The Center for Book Arts Artist Membership program is dedicated to supporting the work of Book Artists across the globe. One of the ongoing benefits of the Artist Membership is the opportunity to exhibit work at the Center for Book Arts. 

This year, we are pleased to invite Artist Members to submit artwork proposals for the 2021 Artist Member Showcase. Artist Members will be selected to present a micro-exhibition featuring a single work. Each month the showcase, situated within the Center's Collection Spotlight Area, will present a different members' micro-exhibition, along with a short description of the work and an artist bio. 

Although there is no theme to the showcase this year, we encourage artists to submit artworks encompassing the broadest exploration and experimentation of the book as an art object.

Each proposal must be completed online through this submittable portal and must include:

  • The member's contact information
  • A 300 word max artist bio
  • One page Artist CV in pdf format
  • A 200 word max artwork explanation
  • 1-3 high resolution images a single completed work. 

Submissions are selected based on the quality and originality of the artwork as presented through the member's submitted photo documentation and description of the artwork proposed. In an effort to promote initiatives toward anti-racism, equity, and accessibility, all submissions are judged without access to any biographical information.

Deadline: December 9, 2020


Application questions should be addressed to exhibitions@centerforbookarts.org

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
