We have several calls for entries we want to share with you today. First, don’t forget the two calls for entries WPG has going on right now–Excellence in Printmaking and Press Room Mini Solos. You can click on the links for the full prospectus of each, but as an overview:
Excellence in Printmaking is open to BFA/MFA students in the greater mid-Atlantic region. This 2nd annual exhibition will be juried by Joann Moser, senior curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Approximately 50 works will be chosen for the exhibition, and first prize wins $500. Deadline is December 10.
Press Room Mini Solo’s are open to all US resident printmakers age 18 and over. We have several months available in 2012 for artists outside of WPG’s regular membership to exhibit in our 10×17 Press Room, which used to be a vault. Deadline for entries is December 31.
Outside of WPG there are several other calls for entries we’d like to mention.
