Book and Paper Arts
Kokomo, IN 46902

Entry Deadline: 09/24/19

Entry Fee (Book and Paper Arts): $25.00 (invoiced once entry is received)

GALLERY:  The Downtown Gallery is located in downtown Kokomo. The gallery displays artwork by students, faculty, alumni and local, regional and national artists throughout the year. They CANNOT accept payment through CAFÉ. There will be a $25 per artist entry fee that will be invoiced once entry is received.

ELIGIBILITY:  This juried exhibition is open to all artists over the age of 18, who reside in the United States.  Any form of book and paper arts is invited. All work must be original and completed in the last two years. All work must be accurately represented in jpeg images.  Work not meeting these criteria will not be exhibited.

JUROR: Anita Garza (b.1959, Chicago, USA) is a multidisciplinary artist and writer, who works with handmade paper, photography, collage, found objects, assemblage and handmade books. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in art and creative non-fiction writing, and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts. She has exhibited work internationally and is published in limited edition journals. She served as Assistant Director and Director of Community Programs at the Center for Book and Paper Arts, at Columbia College Chicago.  Her latest work with organic material binds nature and the material world into disparate, yet symbiotic relationships. Her work is playful, quirky, whimsical and curious or abruptly turns into a vexing, literal statement—provoking introspection and contemplation. She serves as art editor for the international literary and arts journal, Burningword.

PRESENTATION:  Professional presentation of each piece is required. 2D artwork must be framed and have a secure way to hang the piece if it requires hanging. For canvases, the sides and all staples must be covered.  Sculptures should be fully assembled and structurally sound and include detailed installation instructions, if necessary.

SALES: Sales are encouraged and the gallery will receive a 30% commission for any sold artwork. The sale of artwork will be between the artist and the purchaser.  There is a portion of the contract that you will have to fill out in regards to the sale of your artwork.  Once the artist receives payment, they will notify the gallery and the gallery will invoice the artist for the commission.


Delivery and pick-up of artwork will be the responsibility of the artist.  The artist may choose to either personally drop-off and pick-up the work during gallery hours or ship their work to the gallery.  It is the artist’s responsibility to send any shipped artwork in a sturdy, reusable box with a PREPAID return shipping label inside.  Any work not picked up 30 days after the end of the show will become the property of the Indiana University Kokomo Downtown Gallery.
