Call for Entries

I am thrilled that moly_x will be exhibiting at Minnesota Center of Book Arts (MCBA), between mid-January through March 2011. It's coming up! This is a great venue, and this exhibit could mean some wonderful opportunities for other exhibitions around the country, and possible grants. This is a very receptive community.

I would like a few of the great portrait books from this group. These books do not have to be completed. If you have a book right now would you consider sending it to me next. It will be out of circulation through March, but it will get some wonderful attention. I will guarantee it's safe return, or delivery to the next artist on the list.

MCBA does a great job of documenting their shows, so you will have a nice record. Whoever is in the book may add another credit to her/his resumé. We will continue to look for other similar venues for moly_x exhibitions. There are many book art institutions like this around the country, and there are many university book arts, and illustration programs.

I have dreamed of this exhibit since we started this little project. I would like to get 2 or 3 portrait books from this group.

Thanks for you help.

Marty, I'm super-excited about this amazing opportunity and I think it would be great to have a few of our books involved. When will you need them by?

Marty Harris said...

Send the books when you can. Do another entry. The show is in the middle of January.

A couple books from each group will be excellent. i don't want to put an entire group on hold for 4 months.

I was thinking about this offer and as far as I have seen the books I think Heidi's and Dana's are the fullest and I think that they are beautiful as well :) Maybe they would make great candidates.

Ramires said...

I agree about Dana's book, but instead the heidi's, I Prefer Tim's book.

I think we stil have to more months to decide. I also like the way is developing Tim´s book. We just have to put a few more entrys: I will try to post it tomorrow to you Danica, do you still have the same address?

I agree, Tim's book is amazing as well. I was thinking about Heidi's book because there are entries from the "old" members and from the new members aswell. but yes, we will see after few more turns.
yes Omar, I still have the same address, Im looking forward to the book :)
