Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop & Gallery invites printmakers from around the world to submit work for our 9th Annual International Juried Print Exhibition to be held at Remarque from December 10, 2021 to January 29, 2022. The Exhibition aims to present a collection of innovative prints featuring themes and techniques from all traditions of printmaking. We invite works from all printmaking traditions, including, but not limited to: relief, etching, monotype, collagraph, photopolymer intaglio. We are particulary interested in combinations of printmaking traditions.
