Deadline: October 11th, 2015
Artists from around the world have the opportunity to enter the 2016 Delta National Small Prints Exhibition (DNSPE) competition, which is chosen by a nationally known expert in the field of printmaking. Along with selecting the exhibition, the juror also determines which works receive awards, including purchase prizes.
This year the juror is Dennis Michael Jon, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
Eligibility: Open to all artists 18 and older. Submissions must be original works on paper, created within the last two years, including but not limited to, digital, intaglio, lithographic, photographic, relief, serigraphic and stencil processes. Monotypes are also eligible but reproductions of pre-existing works are not.
Entry Fee: A $30 (nonrefundable) entry fee permits each artist to submit up to three prints.
Purchase Awards: Will be made at the discretion of the juror. Each artist receiving an award will have their artist’s statement of 100 words or less printed in the exhibition catalog. Typically more than half of the show is purchased for the ASU Permanent Collection of Art and by the viewing audience.

About: Formerly known as the Bradbury Gallery, the Bradbury Art Museum is a contemporary art facility on the campus of Arkansas State University. It was established in January of 2001 by an endowment in honor of Charlotte Bradbury, an alumna of A-State who later became a member of their Board of Trustees. In 2015 the gallery was renamed as an art museum to better reflect the scope and purpose of the facility.
The Bradbury Art Museum features changing exhibitions of contemporary art in all media and programs that promote the understanding of art and its significance to society. Many prominent regional, national and international artists are presented to inform viewers of cultural developments across the country and around the world. The museum is the site of the Delta National Small Prints Exhibition, an annually held, nationally recognized juried print show of work by artists from the US and abroad.
