[BKARTS] Call for Entries

Call for entries for an exhibition of artists books, to be held at The
Hunterdon Museum of Art, Aug. 14 to Oct. 16, 2005

The Elements: Creative Energy
Science, art and philosophy intermingle in our quest to discern the origin of
our world and our inner selves. The ancient western belief was that four
elements, earth, water, fire and air, work in concert, to create balance out of
chaos. This was a way of beginning to understand relationships in many aspects
of the natural world. In eastern tradition there are forms of energy, or forces
of nature, that interact with our whole physical, psychological and emotional
balance, and are constantly being transformed from one into another.
The alchemists believed they could create new substances. As artists, we
create and transform. This exhibit ask you to explore and respond to this theme by
creating an artist's book or a broadside.
