Curated by Abecedarian Artists’ Books, Opera Verbis will be on view in the Gates Reading Room Gallery, Denver Public Library, Central Branch July – December 2020.
Eligibility and Media
This exhibition is open to any artist 18 years of age or older. If you live outside the United States, please contact gallery for additional submission guidelines.
Eligible are any hand-crafted book works with content that has a direct link to a work already existing in published book form. For example, a work presenting words penned by Emily Dickinson is eligible. A work presenting words penned by the book artist/designer, that has not previously been published in book form is ineligible. Of particular interest is work in which the content has been conceptually developed and expanded beyond its original form, that uses the text source as a starting point for content development. Before submitting, please note that works that are larger than 14 inches in any dimension when closed are challenging to display in this venue and may not be accepted on the basis of size along. Wall hung works are ineligible.
