UNBOUND vol. XI. Art using "the book" as a format, material, or subject.

Unbound vol.XI

Our 11th Unbound exhibit of Book Art returns to Artistree from June 22 - July 15, 2023.  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 - artwork using books as subject matter, material or format. Art lovers and bibliophiles alike can expect to be intrigued and inspired by the work found on exhibit this summer in Unbound, Vol. XI.

Exhibit Prospectus

Eligibility: This exhibition is for artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2D (wall mounted) and 3D media. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution, and must strictly adhere to the theme of the show. Note: reproductions can be used in mixed media work. Submissions are open to Vermont and New Hampshire residents who are 18 years of age or older.

Artists agree in submitting the fee and their work, that Artistree shall not be insuring the work while in transit (delivered to and from), when delivered, and when at Artistree Gallery and thus artists may obtain their own insurance for any loss whatsoever.

Installations are welcome at the discretion of Artistree, but must meet all other specifications and be delivered, installed and removed by the artist (or their approved agent) and picked-up by the artist upon arrangement with Artistree staff.

Submission Guidelines: Artists may submit up to 3 pieces. Depending on space and amount of submissions, we may not be able to accommodate all 3 pieces, so please submit them in order of importance. We will notify you prior to delivery if we cannot exhibit all three pieces. All artists who submit will have at least one piece shown, assuming it fits the theme of the exhibit. If work is for sale, it should be priced with 35% commission going to Artistree.

Please label your actual piece with the following information:
1. The ENTRY # corresponding with your online form
2. YOUR NAME and best contact info
3. TITLE of the piece
