PrintAustin (TX), International Call for Artists: The Contemporary Print 2019
Deadline: November 1st, 2018
From their call: PrintAustin is thrilled to announce the open call for its 6th annual juried international exhibition, The Contemporary Print. Presented in collaboration with Big Medium, this year’s exhibition will be juried by Dr. Anna Katherine Brodbeck, and be held at Big Medium Gallery during PrintAustin 2019.
The Contemporary Print is a survey of traditional printmaking techniques and innovative approaches in contemporary printmaking. While non-traditional or digital output is accepted as a print element, submissions must utilize traditional print media as their primary technique. These include lithography, relief, intaglio, silkscreen, photo polymer plate (i.e. SolarPlates), and monotype.
Juror: Dr. Anna Katherine Brodbeck has served as the Nancy and Tim Hanley Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art since January 2017. A Ph.D. in art history, Dr. Brodbeck earned her master’s and doctorate degrees from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, where she focused on Latin American art, as well as Islamic Art.
Eligibility: Open to local and international artists 18 years or older. Any 2-D or 3-D work including ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, and artist books that uses printmaking as the sole or primary technique in its execution are eligible. Work cannot exceed 72 inches (183 cm) in any direction. Works that have exhibited in past The Contemporary Print exhibitions are not eligible to be considered for this year’s exhibition. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us provide a fresh and current survey of printmaking today. Entry fee.
