Clark County Zine Club – Open Call

Website Clark County Public Arts

together for better

We are pleased to announce a call for art for our newest exhibition, Clark County Zine Club.

What are zines (pronounced “zeen”)?

Zines are self-published and oftentimes printed physical media that share ideas, stories, art, tips, or any content one may come up with. They are a real manifestation of DIY art culture. There are different formats when creating zines such as the popular one sheet “minizine” or the stacking of multiple pages of the classic 8 ½” by 11” sheet – folded in half like a booklet.

There are different ways to create zines:

Photocopiers can be used to make reproductions of drawn, written, or collaged content.
Designed digitally using programs such as Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, as well as Procreate.
The use of other printing processes such as block, screen, or risograph printing.
Binding them allows for another form of expression and creativity. They can be stapled, folded, or stitched together with the use of thread.

The world of zines allows for a multitude of different forms of DIY art creation. We are asking artists to submit a single zine each for consideration into our unofficial zine club exhibition! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Our juror for this exhibition is Jeffrey Bennington Grindley. He is a zine editor who was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. Over Grindley’s career, he has facilitated and co-hosted several spoken word open mic events and has self-published multiple zines including Empty Letters, Memories Slip Through the Cracks and Black Tape, Low Key, and AMFAO. Other zine related projects include the founding and opening of the Las Vegas Zine Library at Emergency Arts Center in July 2010, which later moved to and is currently residing in UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art. He likes playing in the sandbox with cameras, words, pigment, and sound.
