You're Invited

Hello everyone.
Just a head's up that Clare and I have been discussing kicking off round two very shortly. Please comment on this post if you are interested in taking another spin with us. Also, if you've been following this blog and want to join in, please leave a comment with a link to your work so we know who you are. We will put up a generic posting on the flickr site after Sept 1st if we don't have any takers. As a reminder, this is primarily a painting/drawing group with limited collage. The two countries represented thus far are Australia and the US. Unless anyone objects, I would like to leave the archive of our journey live on this blog, with links to your own personal blogs (if desired). There would be some delineation as to who is from round 1 or round 2 if we don't have the same members.

On another note, as you may have read, Marty is currently working on some amazing opportunities for getting this project some display space in a book arts venue this January. If you've had time to finish your own book, please post a pic or video so we can see the finished masterpiece. Would be great to see a book molyx25 selected!

It's been a great experience so far. Thank you all for your time and talents!

Call for Entries

Dear Members,
I am thrilled that moly_x will be exhibiting at Minnesota Center of Book Arts (MCBA), between mid-January through March 2011. It's coming up! This is a great venue, and this exhibit could mean some wonderful opportunities for other exhibitions around the country, and possible grants. This is a very receptive community.

MCBA does a great job of documenting their shows, so you will have a nice record. Whoever is in the book may add another credit to her/his resumé. We will continue to look for other similar venues for moly_x exhibitions. There are many book art institutions like this around the country, and there are many university book arts, and illustration programs.

I have dreamed of this exhibit since we started this little project. I would like to get 2 or 3 portrait books from this group.

Thanks for you help.
