Submit Your Work: UNBOUND Vol. X

Call for entries to UNBOUND Vol X, the 10th annual juried exhibit of unique works exploring what a book can be… art using ‘the book’ as a material or format. Presented by ArtisTree Gallery in conjunction with the Bookstock Festival in Woodstock, VT. Open to all 2D, 3D, installation, assemblage, film and video artists who are working in New England or New York.


The 10th annual juried exhibit of Book Art by artists working in New England or New York, opens in tandem with Bookstock, The Green Mountain Festival of Words, on Friday, July 31st at 5:30pm. Visitors will have an opportunity to examine curious folios, recent grimoires, tomes turned to sculpture and some works having a relation to “books” in concept only. The theme of the show is simple, art using books as a material or a format. Art lovers and bibliophiles alike can expect to be intrigued, and maybe inspired, by the work found on exhibit this summer in Unbound, Vol. X. Presented at ArtisTree Gallery in partnership with Bookstock.

Juror: TBD
Cash prizes awarded.
