Drift Station, an artist-run gallery and performance space in Lincoln, Nebraska, is calling for artist books, zines, comics, small presses, and other non-traditional publications. For the duration of the exhibition, Drift Station will become a bookstore/reading library where the public can look through, peruse, and purchase artworks.

You may send us as many copies of as many works as you want. Any and all publications will be included – our goal is to fill the gallery! Works will be displayed on tables and shelves and must be able to be handled by the public for the duration of the exhibition without gloves. Because of this work has the potential to get damaged, please do not send us elaborate or delicate books that are not meant to be handled by the general public.

All work must either be free or for sale for under $30. In cases where work is sold, Drift Station will take a 40% commission and deposit the remainder into the artist’s PayPal account. Unsold works may either be left at Drift Station for later purchase/given away or will be sent back to the artists (SASE required).

WORKS MUST ARRIVE BY: February 18th, 2012

SUBMISSIONS MUST INCLUDE:
+ Submission form filled out, printed, and signed
(www.driftstation.org/downloads/BookstoreApplicationForm.pdf)
