I'm very happy to report that The Day I Met George has been accepted into the Pop Up Now II Show at 23 Sandy Galley.
Laura Russell emailed the acceptance notices today. She also released the artist's names to Book_Arts-L in celebration of the first day of the Movable Book Society Conference in Boston.
The text of her announcement follows:
Today marks the opening day of the Movable Book Society Conference in Boston. To celebrate, we thought it would be fun to announce the Pop-Up Now II featured artists. A big thank you to all of the artists who entered a superb selection of movable books. And thank you to our guest jurors: Larry Seidman and Jim Carmin who thought long and hard about each book submitted. If you are at the conference, ask Larry to see a preview catalog of the show. I know a few of our artists are at the conference and deserve a pat on the back. Pop-Up Now II will be on view at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon, November 4 - December 16, 2016. More information and a full online catalog will be posted soon. In the meantime, congratulations to our artists:
The Movable Book Society was organized in 1993 to provide a forum for collectors, artists, curators, book sellers, book producers, and others to share enthusiasm and exchange information about pop-up and movable books. The Society has about 400 members worldwide. The Movable Book Society and the Ticknor Society are jointly sponsoring the 2016 Movable Book conference in Boston, September 15 - 17, 2016.
