JUROR: Jeffrey Dell, Professor of Art, Texas State University, San Marcos
This exhibition seeks print works in all printmaking media, including lithographs, screenprints, relief prints, intaglio, monoprints, letterpress, artists books, digital prints and print-based installations. We encourage experimentation and the generation of a dialogue about what printmaking is and can be. The Honolulu Printmakers reserve the right to exclude work deemed not to meet these criteria. Work must have been created within the last three years and may not have been previously shown in a juried exhibition on Oahu.
JURYING AND NOTIFICATION:
Work submitted to callforentry.org for jurying should be 100% complete at the time of upload, and should be accurately and truthfully represented by images. Do not submit digitally re-touched images or simulated drafts of projected work. Note that each distinct piece is a single entry. In the case of polyptychs-- e.g. a diptych-- multiple prints must be contained within a single frame to count as one piece. Honolulu Printmakers and the juror reserve the right to exclude delivered work that deviates from how it was presented at the time of jurying.
Work can only be submitted for jurying from September 1 - December 5, 2018. Accepted artists will be notified on or before December 9, 2018.
Accepted prints are to be delivered framed and presented with wire or other necessary hardware for hanging, and must meet the professional and aesthetic criteria of the exhibition committee. Work that is not to be hung on a wall must have some method to secure it against accident or theft. Artists whose work presents unusual or difficult requirements due to size, format or method of presentation will be required to submit an installation plan, provide all hardware, and install their own pieces under the supervision of the exhibition committee, at a prearranged time. Please call Duncan Dempster at 536-5507 before entry day if you have work that is not traditionally framed or hung with wire. Accepted work that does not meet the above conditions will NOT be accepted for installation.

$40 for the first entry; $5 for each additional entry, up to 5 maximum.
