Something productive for your holiday weekend:
Excellence in Printmaking–we’ve mentioned this exhibition before, but now it’s open to students attending school from the greater mid-Atlantic region (specifically Delaware, DC, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia). Back-story for those who didn’t catch it the first time: Excellence in Printmaking is an award WPG has been giving out with the Washington Print Club for a few years now. This year is the first time we are turning it into a full-blown, juried exhibition. We are privileged to have Katherine Blood, Curator of Fine Prints for the Library of Congress, as our juror. Prizes are still awarded, and first prize has a $500 cash component. Any student attending a BFA or MFA in the above states who has had at least two printmaking courses is eligible to apply.
