MAPC Spring 2012 Members Exhibition, Due: Feb 6‏

January 24, 2012

Contributory: An MAPC Member Exhibition

April 6 – May 11 2012

Juror: Julia Vodrey Hendrickson

Deadline to Apply: February, 6 2012

Spudnik Press Cooperative is excited to host its first juried exhibition for MAPC members. Through hosting this exhibition, we strive to introduce Chicago printers, students, and artists utilizing Spudnik Press to national artists creating exceptional work in the field of printmedia.


A contribution furnishes something towards a result. “Contributory” is a juried show dissecting the parts that create the whole, the chain of events that leads to a result, good works that build communities, and the symbiotic nature of a contribution. “Contributory” reflects on what and how people, the natural world, and technology proffer with intention and purposefulness, or despite themselves.


Print-based artwork only. No digital prints. All accepted artworks must be framed. Maximum framed size is 3′x4′. Entries and fees must be received by February 6, 2012 JUROR Julia Vodrey Hendrickson is a visual artist, writer, print-enthusiast, and curator. She recently released a poetry/artist book called Grow No Moss, printed at Spudnik Press. Primarily based in Chicago where she is the gallery manager at Corbett vs. Dempsey, she is currently pursuing an M.A. in Art History at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London.

Call for Entries:  44T Artspace in Denver, Colorado is accepting submissions for a juried exhibit devoted to fine art prints. The exhibit, entitled Swimming Upstream, will capture and convey the current pulse of youth culture.

Entry fee:  $25 for up to 3 submissions.  We will consider up to 9 prints by a single artist.  Include a check payable to Metro Frame Works with your entry form and CD.
