Altered Book Exhibition

I participated in an Altered Books Exhibition in Little Rock Arkansas and have received word that I have won First Place/Best in Show with my "Flight" book. The judge said, in part, "Perfection in artistry...Ethereal, tactile fantasy for the eye, the hand and mind and soul .... Brilliant use of creative elements and variety of technique ... Completely polished ... Every flutter of a page brings sensual delight...." The complete book can be viewed at WWW.IngridDijkers.com/galleryaltbooks .

My Heart Shaped Book received an Honorable Mention. The judge said, in part, "Visual intrigue inspires exploration. Beautiful, original artistry. Lovely painting and printing techniques. All spreads are delightful ... a visual confection." The complete book can be viewed at WWW.IngridDijkers.com/galleryaltbookspage9 . Needless to say, I am very pleased to have received these awards and am honored to have been selected to participate in this event. I hope to participate again next year!

Way to go. I love both these books. Can you give some more info on the show at LR? I'm about 3 hours away. Might be a good reason to make a trip next year.

It is my understanding that the show will be held at the Chroma Gallery about this time next year. The intention is for it to run at the same time as the Literary Festival in Little Rock Arkansas.
