Call for Entries: 2020 Delta National Small Prints Exhibition

The Delta National Small Prints Exhibition was born of a deep respect and passion for printmaking in a small format. The originator, Evan Lindquist, a master engraver whose work most often has been relatively diminutive, conceived of the show in 1996.

Juror: Gretchen L. Wagner, Andrew W. Mellon Fellow for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, Saint Louis Art Museum

Eligibility: Open to all artists 18 and older. Submissions must be original works on paper, created within the last two years, including but not limited to, digital, intaglio, lithographic, photographic, relief, serigraphic and stencil processes. Monotypes are also eligible but reproductions of pre-existing works are not. Prints exhibited in a previous DNSPE are not eligible.

Display: Each selected print will be framed by the Bradbury Art Museum during the exhibition. In order to ensure that your print will fit into the frame, each print must arrive matted in or mounted on a horizontal or vertical, 16 x 20, 20 x 24, 24 x 24, or 24 x 32 inch white or off-white mat.
