Set to open in the fall of 2012 at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, this GBW exhibition will explore the idea of the horizon. Whether by contemplating the apparent horizon, personal horizons or the horizon of the book as a binding or an object, this exhibition will showcase the current work of the members of the Guild of Book Workers while also offering a glimpse into what is just beyond.

This exhibition will feature approximately 50 works by Guild members. Works will include fine and edition bindings, artist's books, broadsides (letterpress printing, calligraphy, and decorative papermaking) and historical binding models.

Jurors for the Horizon exhibition will be Minnesota Bookbinder and Book Arts Instructor, Jana Pullman, University of Utah Binding Instructor and Studio Coordinator in the Book Arts Program, Emily Tipps, and New Hampshire book artist and photographer, Rutherford Witthus. Works will be juried from digital images. Submissions must be received between January 1 and March 1, 2012. Artists will be notified of selection by April 15.

The Guild of Book Workers will produce a full color printed catalog designed by Julie Leonard and Sara Sauers with photographs and descriptions of each work, as well as biographies of the artists. All exhibition participants will receive a complimentary copy of the printed catalog. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to the catalog fundraiser today: https://www.guildofbookworkers.org/assets/forms/misc/start.php (Please indicate the purpose of the donation is for the Horizon's exhibit catalog.)

Entrants must be current guild members and exhibitors must maintain their membership in good standing throughout the duration of the traveling show. Membership may accompany entry. To join today, visit https://www.guildofbookworkers.org/members/index.php
