IMPRESSIONS PRINTMAKING SHOW OPEN CALL

impressions_submissionDeadline: 12 May

IMPRESSIONS’ is pleased to announce the Open Call for this year’s Impressions Printmaking show, curated by Jason Hicklin (UK).

IMPRESSIONS is the first and longest running National Open Print Exhibition. For more than twenty-five years it has maintained its excellent record for producing high quality print exhibitions and has become a landmark show in the Irish arts calendar. Impressions is a not-for-profit organisation and is run by a team of volunteers motivated by their passion and excitement about print as a medium for making art. An essential objective is to stimulate and engage a wider audience and to create a greater awareness of the historical and cultural specifics of printmaking.  It aims to highlight the intrinsic aspects of printmaking, such as multiplicity and accessibility and to stimulate new ways of thinking about and working with the process.

For 2017 IMPRESSIONS will return to its more usual remit of exhibiting original prints. This will take place during the Galway International Arts Festival in July 2017. It will be hosted by Galway Mayo Institute of Technology at the Centre for Creative Arts and Media.

Artists are invited to submit up to three works online to be considered by our invited curator Jason Hicklin.

Please note: a non-refundable handling fee of €12 per print must be paid in order to complete the application process.
