Midnight tonight is the final deadline to apply for our Excellence in Printmaking exhibition. If you are an MFA/BFA student (or in between) in the greater mid-Atlantic, take a few minutes to submit 3 prints–it could win you $500. Not a $500 gift certificate, but an actual $500 check, courtesy of the Washington Print Club. Details are at our website.
Also, there’s 15 more days to submit a proposal for a Press Room Mini Solo. This wonderful re-vamped space at WPG used to be a vault, but now houses our demo press. We’re looking for month-long exhibitions that use printmaking/papermaking/bookarts techniques from artists outside our membership. More information is at our website.
From the wider world of printmaking, there are two calls for entries we want to share. First, the Mid America Print Council has a slew of calls for its 2012 Biennial Conference, to be held at Camp Girardeau, Missouri. These calls include a call for special panel participants, portfolio proposals, exhibition proposals, demonstration and event proposals, and presentation proposals. More information on all of these calls can be found here.
Finally, Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, IL is looking for artist residents in several media, including printmaking. Residents receive work space in the classroom studios, free classes, learning and teaching opportunities, basic materials & firings, and a monthly stipend for additional materials or personal use. Residents are expected to be present and at work in their department 20 hours each week. You can find out more about Lillstreet and their artist residency program at their website.
