Every year one RE member will be selected for a 6 week full fellowship. The RE Visiting Guest Artist will receive keys and full access to the studios 7 days a week, as well as housing accommodation in a private bedroom in Palazzo Dandolo on the Grand Canal. An exhibition will be also granted.

The Guest Artists are responsible for their meals and for travel and local transportation costs.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: BIG INK OHIO

Deadline - June 24, 2019

BIG INK is traveling to Ohio. Art centers in each state have invited BIG INK to host two-day events where prints will be pulled from large-scale woodblock plates. They are seeking image proposals from emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists who would like to carve a woodblock, at least 24" x 36" inches in dimension, to print at each event.  No prior printmaking experience is required. Any artist that has an interest in print media and wants to achieve a deeper understanding of woodblock carving is welcome to apply.

Upon completing the online application and being accepted, artists will have two months prior to the event to carve their design.  We've assembled how-to videos that guide participants through the carving process.  The series draws from invaluable technical observations made by BIG INK's directors and past participating artists.  The artists' sole responsibility is to bring a fully carved and ready to print woodblock on their assigned printing day.  All consumable materials including paper, ink, cleaning supplies and equipment are included with participation.  

The event itself is an excellent way to network with other participants, plug into a growing creative community, and produce high-quality work that can later be used for sale and exhibition.

For more information, visit their website.

In Exchange: Small Press Fair South Florida Printmaking Open Call

SPF South Florida is pleased to announce an open call for submissions. In Exchange is an exhibition which invites artists to submit work with a particular focus on the collaborative nature of fine art printmaking. Historically, printmaking has brought artists together on the press; often a master printmaker bringing into the fold an artist whose expertise lies in other medium, whether that be painting, collage, drawing or sculpture. Through collaboration, the two are able to produce something greater than their two halves, allowing an exchange between process and ideas. Within contemporary printmaking, the act of collaboration expands beyond location, allowing printmakers who have never met to trade work and engage through print portfolio exchanges. Though this exhibition calls for work made in collaboration with printmakers, it is not solely focused on exhibiting printed editions in the traditional sense. Instead, this exhibition opens a dialogue about how collaboration functions in the contemporary art world. Whether producing large-scale paper installations or miniature sculptural paintings, submissions should be the result of an exchange between at least two artists, one with a focus in printmaking. This exhibition will be open September - December, 2019 in The Projects located in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale. In Exchange will accompany the fourth edition of Small Press Fair, SPF’19 on November 9, 2019. The opening reception will be held September 28, 2019 with a closing reception on November 30, 2019, during the FATVillage Artwalks which attract thousands of visitors to the art enclave.

ENTRY DETAILS!

ELIGIBILITY:  Submitted work must be relevant to Printmaking with an emphasis on collaborative approaches which may include fiber arts, sculpture, ceramics, installation and beyond. Keep in mind that the exhibition space is 10,000 sq ft of raw open warehouse and is not climate controlled. In addition to traditional wall-hung prints, it can house work 19-ft high. The space is equipped with floating walls, projectors, lighting and can accommodate suspended, ceiling-hung works. We are interested in seeing how far the boundaries of collaboration within printmaking can be pushed!

SUBMISSION FORMAT: All images should be digitally submitted through our application form. Uploaded Images may include jpeg, videos (if applicable) or PDF if submitting a proposal.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: The digital submission deadline for images and entry fee is Sunday, June 16th, 2019 by 11:59pm.

COMMISSION: There will be a 50% Commission on any sales made during this exhibition.

ENTRY FEE: There is a non-refundable $20 entry fee for five images. You may include details shots in your five submissions, but you may not exceed five total submissions.
