In December 2015, WoCA Projects is partnering with the Fort Worth Community Arts Center to present its 3rd Annual Juried Artists’ Books Exhibition exploring the diversity within the artist book medium, including both traditional book-binded forms as well as (but not limited to) those works that use books as a reference or metaphor to create other conceptual forms. Examples might explore the interchangeable use of of mixed-media, painting, drawing, printmaking, fiber arts, photography, sculpture, ceramics, sound, film/video, and installations in the creation or referencing of the book form. Note: the inclusion of text and exact references to traditional books not required.
