THE CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS ANNOUNCES 2004 ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMS

New York, NY - As part of its continuing commitment to education and
innovation in the book arts, The Center for Book Arts will offer two Artist'
s residency programs in 2004.

The recipient of the Sally R. Bishop Artist's Residency will create a
limited edition book and teach a workshop at The Center during a six-week
residency.  The artist will have the opportunity to live and work in New
York City from mid-June to the end of July.  The Bishop residency award
includes transportation to NYC, living space, a $1500 stipend, access to The
Center's printing and binding facilities, individual studio space, an
assistant, a $1,000 materials budget, and an exhibit in one gallery case as
the Center's Monthly Featured Artist.

In 2004 The Center will continue its Workspace Grant for New York Emerging
Artists. The recipients of this award will be offered space, time and
support to explore the production and exhibition of artist's books and
related work. Up to four artists will have the opportunity to work at The
Center for a six to eight week period. The Center is committed to supporting
emerging artists, particularly those from cultural and artistic traditions
under-represented in the book arts field.

The Workspace Grant includes individual studio space, a $500 cash stipend,
full use of The Center's unique printing and binding facilities, up to $1000
materials budget, and an opening reception and presentation of the artist's
work in one gallery case as a Monthly Featured Artist. This includes an
announcement of the exhibit and a web page about the artist's work on The
Center's website. As part of the award, the artists may enroll tuition-free
in The Center's week-long workshop Bookbinding for Artists, or an equivalent
course in letterpress printing. An experienced printer and bookbinder will
be available to advise the artists on issues of materials and techniques as
they experiment with different book structures and processes. The Workspace
Grant for NY Emerging Artists program is made possible with public funds
from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.

Applications for both residency programs must be postmarked by October 1,
2003. For complete application information, see The Center's website
