Ptarmigan Arts seeks art for book show

Ptramigan Artist Co-Op invites all artists to submit entries for their April 2019 Back Room Gallery show, “By the Book.”

This is a challenge to honor the written word with some kind of homage to books.

Create a book, use a book as your medium, or create a celebration of your favorite author, book, or the joys of reading.

A few possibilities could include a painting or sculpture honoring your favorite author or book, a book made from scratch, or a deconstructed book collaged and painted or drawn on.

There are endless possibilities for folding pages of a book to create various designs.

Show Homer your creativity and send us your best work.

The show is open to all; however, notification to participate is appreciated.

Submit your work at the gallery on April 1, 2, or 3 during regular business hours from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

All work must be for sale.

Please call or text Jean Steele at 907-399-2466 for all inquiries, or email her at jean.m.steele@gmail.com.
