Richmond Art Center (CA), Call for California Printmakers: Pressing On
Deadline: April 10th, 2017
Pressing On offers the opportunity to see the most contemporary explorations in contemporary printmaking. In a time when things happen with the push of a button, the hands-on mixing materials and process – the transformation from plate to print—is still magical. We invite the private view, the personal voice, and the public position: all current trends in printmaking as artists keep Pressing On. Entry fee.
Awards: Three cash awards totaling $1,000.
Juror: Karin Breuer is Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Graphic Arts Foundation of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. In a career spanning decades, Karin Breuer has mounted exhibitions ranging from the scholarly depths of Japanese woodblock prints and their influence on Western art to the archives of local art presses and a flowering of California printmaking and reveling most recently in the idiosyncratic, humor-infused screen prints of Ed Ruscha.
