Meraviglia: Innovations in the Book Arts 

A Regional Call for Entries

Meraviglia will investigate the nature of the book as a format for artistic self expression. We welcome book submissions that are innovative engineering wonders that will stretch the imagination of both artist and viewer.


The exhibition title, Meraviglia, is an Italian word meaning "wonder, astonishment" with connotations of awe and the excitement of discovery. In this exhibition we will take a look at unique book structures and the stories contained within. Artists are asked to respond to this theme as it relates to structure, form and content as an integrated whole.

The exhibition is open to artists who live or work in Pennsylvania or New Jersey.  


Application Deadline: October 9, 2005

Exhibition Dates: January 2 - January 22, 2005


Juror: Liz Mitchell creates artist's books and collage from her studio in Pittstown, NJ. Her work includes both altered books and unique book structures. She has exhibited widely and her work is included in a number of corporate and library collections. She teaches book arts to adults and children and presented "Telling Stories: Literacy Through Personal Story Telling and the Book Arts" at the Fourth Annual Convention of the Global Understanding Project at Monmouth University 2005.
