This juried exhibition explores how the artist perceives printmaking today. From tried-and-true traditional techniques to a widening array of new technologies, printmakers are encouraged to entrust their insights using unique approaches and skills to enable their imagery to emerge on the surface. All print techniques and substrates, ranging from traditional to experimental and digital are allowed (except giclee reproductions). 

MAXIMUM ARTWORK SIZE: No larger than 48” inches on its longest side, including frame

Juror: Joe Higgins. A well-respected Colorado artist working primarily in monotypes. “I work in monotype and my pictures deal with place, spiritual presence and the vexations of making connections of the spirit. The images are representational, but also conceptual and symbolic." Higgins has taught classes in monotype at the Art Students League of Denver since 2010. 

Judging the work will rely on overall impact, content, composition and mastery of techniques. Attention to creativity and craftsmanship is a very important part of this as well. When entering please list all the media used in the description field for your entries. Consider weight and the fragility of your media if you are mailing your entry.
