NEXT 2014

Deadline: March 31, 2014 (ONLINE)

NEXT 2014

June 7 to July 5, 2014

PrintMatters is pleased to announce NEXT 2014, a contemporary print biennial to be held during PRINTHOUSTON 2014. We are looking for innovative and challenging works that transcend process and materials and present printmaking as a versatile and adaptable medium. We invite artists who are pushing the boundaries of techniques and materials to apply. We also welcome those artists who are using traditional techniques to speak to contemporary audiences.

In addition to lithography, relief, intaglio, monotype, or serigraphy, we are interested in artists who use printmaking to create installations, ceramics, sculpture, and artists’ books. The only criteria, beyond excellent quality, is that the primary technique(s) used in the creation of the work be listed above.

PrintMatters is a Houston-based arts organization. Our mission is to promote traditional and non-traditional printmaking, encourage print collecting, and facilitate the professional growth of our members.

In 2011, we created PRINTHOUSTON, an annual summer-long celebration of original prints, the artists who create them, and the people who collect them. Exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and special events at galleries, museums, non-profit organizations, and commercial venues take place throughout the city.

In order to ensure the quality of the exhibition, the juror reserves the right to reject any work that was not accurately represented in the digital file. The juror’s decision is final.

Nicole Longnecker Gallery is located at 2625 Colquitt Street, in the heart of Houston’s Gallery Row.

Yizhak Elyashiv will announce the awards at a reception in his honor on June 8. At a special reception on June 28, Nicole Longnecker will announce her selections for a group exhibit in 2015.

Open to all U.S. artists 18 years and older. Works must be original, not to exceed 96 inches in any direction, completed in the last two years, and not previously shown in Houston. Collaborative work should be entered under only one of the artist’s name. No student work, reproductions, or photography.

$45 for up to 3 entries, payable during the online entry process.
