A Juried Exhibition of hand-pulled prints
Presented by Light Art Space, sponsored by the Southwest Print Fiesta
Exhibition on view October 11- November 10, 2019
OBSESSION is an exhibition of hand-pulled prints responding to the idea of a compulsive preoccupation with an object, idea, person, place, memory, phobia, pattern, thought, image, shape, word, and more. This exhibition will highlight the many visual guises that infatuation can take and challenge the viewer’s relationship to their own habitual fixations and proclivities.
SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: All entries must be hand-pulled prints using traditional printmaking processes in any combination of silkscreen, letterpress, collagraphy, etching, woodcut, lithography, linocut, drypoint, mezzotint, monoprint or polymer plates. Digital and photographic elements may be used as a supporting element. Artworks that are computer generated or digitally altered photographs or photographic reproductions will not be accepted. Works need to be framed in the square format in white or black frames. Maximum framed size 60″ x 60″. No colored Matts.
