College Book Art Association: Bi-annual Conference and Student Awards

Call for Entries,Exhibitions,Lectures — printmaking @ 8:50 am, Monday, September 22nd, 2008

The College Book Art Association supports and promotes academic book art education by fostering the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship, and criticism. As part of this mission, the CBAA is offering awards for two outstanding student books. The finalists’ entries will be judged and, as space permits, exhibited at the CBAA bi-annual conference, January 10–11, 2009 at the Center for the Book at the University of Iowa. Download application here.

The first biennial conference of the College Book Art Association seeks to bridge the worlds of book art, book history, cultural criticism, and curatorial work through appreciation of the book as an aesthetic sensorium. Scholarship, artistic practice, and the digital age have evoked for us the multimedia nature of the book experience. At a time when the book arts have never been more vital, ART, FACT, AND ARTIFACT builds from these energies and will offer presentations, papers, studio demonstrations, and exhibits from artists and scholars interested in the future, present, and past of the book as an expressive form.

Painter and sculptor Jon Rappleye brings his fantastical world to campus during the fall semester as he discusses his art-making process, techniques, and inspiration at a free, public lecture.

The Jersey City, N.J.-based artist describes the creatures and strange hybrid phenomena that occupy his acrylic paintings and vitreous china sculptures as a “homespun fairy tale, a recreation of cultural folklore, and a personal mythology.”

Rappleye’s talk is part of his semester-long residency with MICA’s printmaking department. He is working with students in the do-it-yourself course, Studio Remix: A Dolphin Press Collaboration, which focuses on hand-pulled prints and explores all aspects of print shop collaboration. Students will work one-on-one with Rappleye during his visits to campus and execute a limited edition suite of prints of his work.
