Now Showing: EcoEditions
Through December 28, 2013
23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present EcoEditions, an international juried exhibition of contemporary artist books focusing on the environment. EcoEditions hopes to prove that books really can save the world. Artist books raise consciousness, create awareness and change thinking. We invited book artists to use their powers as stewards of the earth to report on the state of our environment, ecology, sustainability, pollution, climate, recycling and our planet in general.
This exhibition showcases 42 unique and limited edition artist books, sculptural bookworks and more from 38 artists from around the world, including China and Australia, the UK and Canada.
Mark your calendar for an artists reception for EcoEditions on Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Several artists will be in attendance, including Fiona Dempster, who will be here all the way from Australia and Abigail Schultz all the way from Hawaii!
EcoEditions was juried by Cara List, the Art and Art History Librarian at the University of Oregon Architecture and Allied Arts Library. As the curator of the Artists’ Book Collection, she teaches extensively with artists’ books. Cara received her MFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she worked and exhibited for a number of years, before getting a Masters in Information Science at the University of Michigan.
