In April 2005, Seattle Print Arts will hold a juried exhibit of socially
engaged printmaking at Seattle's Phinney Neighborhood Community Center.
The exhibit will showcase print art which uses themes of social justice
and global equity to engage community members in political conversation.
Because of its accessibility and reproducibility, print art has long been
used by activists as a communication tool in struggles for freedom and
social equality. The bold graphic qualities made possible by printmaking
techniques are used to communicate with and educate broad audiences all
over the world.
Artists of all experience levels and backgrounds are encouraged to submit
work. We hope to showcase work by over one hundred artists, and we look
forward to your participation.
JUROR: The exhibit will be juried by Josh MacPhee, an artist and activist
based in Chicago. MacPhee recently curated "Paper Politics," an extremely
successful political printmaking show in Chicago which showcased over 250
prints from over 60 artists. He is the author of the recently published
"Stencil Pirates: A Global Study of the Street Stencil," on Soft Skull Press.
MEDIA INCLUDED: "Print art" featured in this exhibit can
include monotypes, silkscreen, letterpress, stenciling, etching, block
prints, hand-processed photo prints, or any kind of printing on paper
that retains some evidence of the human hand. Digital prints will
be accepted if the medium is used in combination with a
SIZE: The maximum size of prints for this exhibition is 24" x 36".

By email: Submit images of your prints via email to
both josh(at)justseeds.org and to Seattle Print Arts
