Asheville BookWorks is soliciting entries for its eighth BookOpolis, an annual exhibition and celebration of artists' books and prints. Located in West Asheville, North Carolina, BookWorks is a vibrant community center for the book arts and printmaking. The theme for BookOpolis 2012 is "Editorial Content: Spine-Tickling Artists' Books." Entries must be delivered during the period, August 20 to 24, 2012; submitted works will be exhibited during BookOpolis weekend, September 21-22, 2011.
Juror Tatana Kellner will also make a selection of the best work for extended display through November 30, 2012. A prospectus with further details, as well as an entry form, is available at the BookWorks website.
Throughout the year, BookWooks sponsors workshops, exhibits, lectures, and other events, such as the Edible Book Festival.
BookWorks is a valuable resource for all those with an interest in the
book arts, providing "space, equipment and technical support for
artistic exploration, collaboration and the sharing of knowledge."
