The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) is pleased to announce a call for artists for “Paper, Prints, Books, and Zines by Hand,” on display at The Creamery Arts Center from November 1-29, 2013.
The exhibition is intended to bring together print artists and groups from around the region as well as those from local colleges and universities. SRAC hopes that the exhibition will facilitate networking amongst print and book artists and will inspire others to explore the art of printmaking.
Entries must be delivered to SRAC in person at The Creamery on Friday or Monday, October 25 or 28, 2013 between 9:00am-5:00pm. Entries may include all print forms produced by hand, including manual press work, artist books, book art, zines, and handmade paper. Acceptable entries may range from traditional to experimental and from small-scale to large-scale.
Participants may submit as many pieces as they like for review and potential selection. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and will be required to complete an entry form for each work submitted:
· Name of artist
