A juried exhibition exploring the artistic possibilities of one-of-a-kind, handmade books, altered books, and book objects. Work must share the three-dimensional quality of a traditional book but can be sculptural, alternative and/or experimental in nature.


M.J. GOERKE considers a book construction as something designed and made by hand; self-contained as a traditional paged book or as a sculptural piece to house the book. Likewise, book deconstruction is just as important, as the entire contents of a book can be emptied to transform the piece. M.J.'s work is in many corporate and private collections, including the ArtColle Museum in Sergines, France and the Internal Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction in Mexico.
