Call for Entries: “And” SGCI Postcard Exhibitions

September 24, 2015
Hello Printmakers!

I’m the SGC International Student Member at Large, and I am writing to you to invite you to participate in And, a student led art show. Along with last year’s SGC International student representative, Cynthia Tidler, and others, we are organizing an exhibition to take place in three venues this fall (the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the University of Iowa). The exhibition is an open-call for postcards incorporating printmaking and/or digital techniques. We’d love your involvement, and especially encourage student participants. The show’s theme, And, is a reflection on how printmaking and art can foster community across locations.We ask that participants send a postcard-sized print (4”x 6”) to each institution by October 15. If you wanted to involve your classes, you would also be welcome to send all the prints en masse to Knoxville for us to distribute. Individuals submitting information digitally can email the image to and.artshow@gmail.cominstead of mailing work. You’ll find attached a prospectus with the particular details.

We’re really excited to offer students a chance to be in three gallery exhibitions, and the works will also become part of the Print Archive at the University of Iowa. Please don’t hesitate to contact me ( with any questions. We look forward to seeing your work!

2nd Rocky Mountain Printmaking Alliance Symposium. 17-19 October, 2013.
University of Utah, Salt Lake City., Symposium Title: “Public Gestures.”
Proposals due: June 1, 2013.


Printmaking has a long history of producing cultural artifacts that comment on societal issues and concerns. This project brings this to the forefront by organizing a symposium to exhibit and discuss contemporary works and techniques that explore the role of Printmedia in this dialogue, whether used directly as part of an event, as a means of commentary or satire, or as a way to engage others in its creation. Particular topics may include but are not limited to; Community Engagement; Political Discourse; the Environment; Animal Rights; Privacy; Healthcare; Communication Technologies; Globalisation; Education; Cultural Concerns; Historical Precedents; the influence of the individual in promoting action and also the range of obstructions that may restrict action. These topics may be local, national or international in scope.



As printmaking continues to reinvent itself and forge connections to other disciplines, it facilitates new possibilities. Proposals for panels, portfolios and events that cross traditional boundaries and mediums or incorporate new methodologies and techniques will be actively encouraged. Students are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.

This call is open to residents of AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, WA, WY and UT.

Please go to the website for submission details:
