Exhibitions Committee Report

Karen Hanmer

GBW Exhibitions Chair

The online submission form for the Marking Time exhibition is now available until March 1, only to those who filed an Intent to Enter form.

Jurors will be North Bennet Street School bookbinding instructor Jeff Altepeter; paper sculptor, book and installation artist, and teacher Melissa Jay Craig; and past Guild of Book Workers exhibitions chair, binder, and Bonefolder publisher Peter Verheyen.

Marking Time opens in May 2009 at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis, and will be on exhibit concurrent with two special events there, the Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies Bibliophilic Tour and Symposium in May, and the MCBA Book Art Biennial in July. The show then travels to the San Francisco Public Library, where it will be on view during the 2009 Guild of Book Workers Standards of Excellence Seminar.

Detailed information on submitting work for jury, making a donation to support the Marking Time exhibition catalog, and a complete tour schedule are posted on the Guild’s website.
