    The Kalamazoo Book Arts Center (KBAC) announces a call to artists for the non-juried exhibition “The Illustrated Accordion,” which will be held in the KBAC Gallery, April 9, 2021. Open to all emerging and established artists, this 13th annual exhibition focuses on books created in the accordion form. All media, variations, and interpretations of this style of book will be accepted and included in the exhibition. There is a $15 entry fee to participate.

    We are planning on holding this exhibit in person and open to the public in a limited capacity. If we are able to hold an opening for the exhibition it will be April 16th, from 6:00–9:00 p.m. Works will be returned by mail, or available for pick up, after June 30.
    The exhibit will also be online, but all books must be sent to the KBAC for display in person. We will photograph all the books once they arrive, but if you prefer to send your own photos for the online show please send them to
