Submit Your Work: UNBOUND Vol. X

We are happy to announce the return of UNBOUND Vol X, the 10th exhibit of unique works exploring what a book can be… art using ‘the book’ as a subject, material or format. Presented by Artistree Gallery in conjunction with Bookstock in Woodstock, VT. Open to all 2D & 3D artworks by artists who are working in VT or NH.

 Your Words Were Found So I Ate Them" - by A.S.McGuffin

CALL for ENTRIES!

Our 10th exhibit of Book Art returns to Artistree in tandem with Bookstock, The Green Mountain Festival of Words, from June 24 - July 16, 2022. 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 subject matter, material or 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, which takes place in Woodstock, VT June 24 - 26, 2022.

Open to artists working in Vermont or New Hampshire.
People's Choice prizes awarded at exhibit end. Vote for your favorite piece! (1 vote per visitor).
