Good news printmaking students! WPG’s Excellence in Printmaking Exhibition, which features emerging printmakers studying for their MFA or BFA, is now seeking entries for the 2013 show. Even better, this is the first year it is open to students NATIONWIDE! This juried show will include 50 prints by MFA/BFA candidates with a focus on traditional printmaking (sorry, no photography or digital prints). Grand prize is a $500 check, and other prizes are awarded, as well.
We’re super excited to have R.L. Tillman of PRINTERESTING.ORG as this year’s juror. Mr. Tillman is not only a founding editor of Printeresting, he is also an artist in his own right and professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art. We’re sure he’ll pick a great show.
If you’re interested in applying, you can see the prospectus on our website, or you can email info (at) washingtonprintmakers (dot) com for a PDF as well. Currently, the entry fee is $15 for 5 images…BUT we are also in the process of setting up a kickstarter project to fully fund the exhibition. If we get full funding, we’ll refund everyone’s entry fees for a free application! Check back soon for the link to the kickstarter project to share with your friends and family!
