This award will be given to inspire artists to push their own boundaries, and that of printmaking.
It may bring forth a stretch in media or a personal stretch in images/content. We would like to see a link between their familiar approach to printmaking and the new work. The resulting artwork must be print/graphic based. Artists must show a strong dedication to experimentation, exploration,
expansion, and have a curiosity about taking their work into a new realm. This is to be viewed as an opportunity to do something different.
Only professional artists may apply. No matriculated student will be accepted.
Artists who have received funding from Seattle Print Arts in 2010 must wait until 2012 to apply again.
The artists must confirm a venue to show the work that was developed with the award. It can be in their studio, but there must be an event that is open to the public. In the case of an installation in a public space (park, construction fence, sidewalk, etc.), the artist must obtain prior permission in writing from the entity in charge of the space. The artist is required to leave the space the art occupied clean and unaltered, at a date agreed upon before the work starts. Out-of state-applicants please note:
You will need to install and present your final work in Seattle. Seattle Print Arts will do its best to assist you in finding a space to exhibit your work.
