Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery invites printmakers and photographers from around the world to submit work for our exhibition, “Punching Marshmallows: Rage, Uncertainty and Fatigue” to be held at Remarque Print Workshop and Gallery in Albuquerque, NM from July 10th – August 29th, 2020
“Punching Marshmallows” is a call for hand-printed photographic imagery using “alternative processes”, such as: photogravure, photopolymer intaglio, cyanotype, gum bichromate, carbon, salt, lumen, anthotype, gumoil, etc; basically, any alternative to straight digital printing. We are looking for images that explore the boundaries between photography and printmaking and that involve some form of hand-work. The theme of “Punching Marshmallows” can be widely interpreted...literally, figuratively, expressively, psychologically, visually, etc. In this time of political dissonance and social distance we are looking for images that explore the feelings of frustration, helplessness, fear and anger that so typify the current moment.
If you have any questions about the suitability of your process, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is one of the first completely non-toxic printmaking facilities in the country. Our award-winning studio offers access to printmaking equipment and year-round classes in a great range of techniques.

This fee covers administration, publicity and exhibition costs.
Remarque Print Workshop will make every effort to present this show as a traditional exhibition (opening reception, gallery open to the public for regular hours etc.). If the local requirements for social distancing prevent us from holding an opening reception, we will still hang the show and open the gallery to the extent possible. If necessary we will show the work on an appointment basis. In any event, we will post the works on our website and have them for sale there. We appreciate your flexibility with all this.
