Pittsburgh Print Group - Printmaking 2015: Call for Artists

June 2

The Pittsburgh Print Group is an artist guild affiliated with the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Founded in 1972, the Group's purpose is to support artists who are printmakers through exhibits, educational projects and other promotional activities. The Group is also committed to the advancement and promotion of the printmaking art throughout various educational and community-oriented activities.

This exhibition is open to all printmakers in the Pittsburgh region.

A printmaking process – relief, intaglio, silkscreen lithography, monotype – must be central to the execution of all entries. Photographs, offset reproductions, or reproductions of artwork originally produced in another medium will not be considered; however, photographs and other digital images may be used as part of the final image but may not stand-alone.

Work must be original and new, created within the past three years, and not exhibited previously at the PCA or within a 150-mile radius of Pittsburgh.
