The Book Arts Jam will happen this year on Saturday, October 18, from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Foothill College 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills, California. Free admission, parking $2.

From the website (go there for more detailed information):

"Join us for Book Arts Jam 2008, a one-day regional celebration of the book and print arts, co-sponsored by the Bay Area Book Artists and Foothill College. This year’s event features a one-day exhibition of artists’ books with talks by exhibiting artists; hands-on demonstrations; an exhibitors’ showcase with work by more than 40 artists and craftspeople in the book, paper, and print arts; a slideshow of recent member work; silent auction; prize drawing and refreshments.

The intent of the Book Arts Jam is to bring together book artists and audiences interested in the book arts to create a forum for artists to show and sell their work, and for visitors of all kinds including, book arts fans and artists, as well as audiences new to book arts, to see the work of others and learn about the book arts. The jam will encourage visitors to learn, explore and create through demonstrations, hands-on projects, and displays."

P.S. I won't be an exhibitor this year, but will have some books in the member's exhibition. There will be at least 50 books from the various members, plus the exhibitor's showcase, which you will remember as the large area filled with tables of artist's books, if you have attended in the past. I will also be talking a bit about my work at 1pm, and doing other stuff in the area. I always leave the Jam feeling so energized, I hope you can come.
