This call asks artists to consider uncertain and changing boundaries in their work and lives. Many types of boundaries can be referenced: social, personal, and artistic, to name a few. Social boundaries can be thought of as objectified forms of social differences manifested in unequal access to and unequal distribution of resources (material and nonmaterial) and social opportunities. Personal boundaries can be emotional, physical, or even digital. Artistic or creative boundaries can be stylistic, cognitive, material, and aesthetic. Each artist is encouraged to challenge themselves while having fun with the concept.

Submission Requirements

All entries must be handmade prints printed by the artist using traditional printmaking and/or photographic processes and created in the last 5 years.  3D and experimental work is encouraged. Any combination of processes may be employed including but not limited to silkscreen, letterpress, calligraphy, etching, woodcut, lithography, linocut, drypoint, mezzotint, monoprint, polymer plates, silver gelatin prints, photopolymer gravure, copperplate gravure, cyanotype, vandyke, gumbichromate, palladium, platinum, carbon, salt, wet plate, chemigram, lumen, argrotype, oilprint, chlorophyll, instant transfers, and lifts. AI generated images will not be accepted.

**Digital photographic images can be used in combination with other processes, but straight digital prints will not be accepted. 

Work needs to arrive at the gallery ready to hang but framing is not required. Magnets, clips, and other methods can be used.  

Juror: Juana Estrada Hernández

Juana Estrada Hernández channels her experience growing up as an immigrant in the United States into drawing and print media that address political and social issues pertaining to communities of Latinx migrants. Mexican culture and folklore, pop culture, and her family’s migration stories inspire her artistic output.

Juana Estrada Hernández was born in Luis Moya, Zacatecas, Mexico. She received her BFA in Printmaking from Fort Hays State University in Kansas in 2018 and her MFA from the University of New Mexico in 2021. She is currently teaching at the Rhode Island School of Design as Assistant Professor of Printmaking.
