Pressing On – Contemporary Printmaking – Call For Artists

Pressing On – Contemporary Printmaking – Call For Artists

Richmond Art Center announces a call for artists for Pressing On – Contemporary Printmaking Juried Exhibition.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 10 Apr 2017

The Richmond Art Center presents important and highly regarded exhibitions. This focus on current printmaking practices is a very timely issue.  Pressing On offers the opportunity to see the most contemporary explorations in contemporary printmaking. In a time when things happen with the push of a button, the hands-on mixing of materials and process is still magical. Much work in immediate response to the political and social issues confronting us today is coming out of studios and seeking attention. Richmond Art Center invites the current trends in printmaking, private view, personal voice, and public position, as artists keep Pressing On.

Karin Breuer, juror, is Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Graphic Arts Foundation of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. In a career spanning decades, Karin Breuer has mounted exhibitions ranging from the scholarly depths of Japanese woodblock prints and their influence on Western art to the archives of local art presses. Other exhibitions include the flowering of California printmaking and the idiosyncratic, humor-infused screen prints of Ed Ruscha.

This is an opportunity to be exhibited in a select group. This places the artist’s work in a seriously considered context and venue.  This promises to be an engaging and relevant exhibition. There are prizes to be awarded amounting to $1,000.

About the Richmond Art Center

The Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay. They deliver exciting arts experiences to young and old alike who reflect the diverse richness of the community. They do this through hands-on learning, well-equipped studios, traveling Art in the Community programs, and contemporary exhibitions in the galleries.

Every year, the Center serves thousands of students through classes and programs taught by professional artists. Programs are onsite and throughout Richmond. The four galleries allow them to mount rotating exhibitions that display the works of Bay Area artists. Artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Jay DeFeo, Wanxin Zhang, Hung Liu, Ed Rossbach, and Peter Voulkos have been showcased at the Center.

The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936 when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond. She had a suitcase packed with art supplies and was eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything the Center does continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: that within every person lives an artist.
