Entry deadline June 28, 2019
The California Society of Printmakers and Monterey Peninsula College Printmakers Club invite members to submit work for a juried exhibition at Pacific Grove Art Center in response to the theme Perception of Place. The exhibition aims to explore “place” in its diverse meaning through the medium of printmaking. In investigating place, artists may consider tangible subject matter such as geography, physical location, or a specific setting. Works may focus on “place” in our home, workplace or community. Submissions that consider the conceptual aspects of “place” might examine emotion, psychological issues, circumstances or feelings. Identity, status and rank are associated with our sense of place within society. A sense of “place” can also be associated with memory, experience, responsibility and duty. In addition, the printmaking process requires the artist to combine careful thought and planning with creativity, in a way that requires a strong sense of place and placement on the page. In this sense, artists may choose to take inspiration from their working process and the printmaking process itself.
