Dear Members (particularly Australian members)
I am trying to get some feedback about Artspace Mackay's Focus on Artists Books Forum, particularly from those of you who did not attend the Forum this year. The numbers dropped this year from previous years and I am trying to find out if there was any single major reason for this. Following feedback after the 2008 Forum, we changed the date from the more cyclone/flooding prone February date to early April. Was this too close to Easter? Was it an advantage or a disadvantage to schedule it during the holidays? What time of year would be most suitable?
Or perhaps it was the lineup of speakers - Do you feel that the Forum is too high-brow or too low-brow? Have we deviated too far from the more the more popular print-based artists books? Should we have more artists talking about their work and less historical analysis? Is it too expensive?
Any suggestions or feedback would be much appreciated.
Thank you
Michael (Wardell)
Director, Artspace Mackay

The Center for Book Arts is pleased to announce the Edward and Sally Van
Lier/Stein Family Scholarship Fund for Advanced Studies in Book Arts. In
2010, the Center will award three scholarships to individuals who have
demonstrated a commitment to the artistic endeavors in the book arts. The
purpose of this program is to provide opportunities to emerging artists
committed to developing careers in the book arts field, and to further the
growth of this artistic profession.

The award includes a $3,000 cash stipend plus a materials budget of $1,000
and 24 hour access to the Center's printing and binding facilities for a
full year. Artists also receive a tuition waiver for courses throughout the
year, planned in conjunction with the staff. Experienced printers and
bookbinders will be available to advise the artists on issues of materials
and techniques as they arise. Scholars will be required to complete an
artist project by the end of the scholarship period, with the possibility of
an exhibition in our gallery space. They will have the opportunity to teach
certain core courses at the Center, depending on their background. They will
also have the opportunity to collaborate in special publications and artist
projects. No travel or lodging reimbursements are available.

More information, including complete guidelines are available here:

Application postmark deadline is May 1, 2010.
