NH Art Association hosts juried printmaking exhibition

PORTSMOUTH – The New Hampshire Art Association will host a juried printmaking exhibition in July open to all New England printmakers, including NHAA members and non-members.

The exhibition runs from June 29th to July 31st at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery at 136 State St., Portsmouth. The deadline for online submissions is May 27th. They should be pieces that have been created in the last five years and have not been shown at the Levy Gallery for a year. Up to three pieces can be submitted.

Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a plate, block or screen to another surface, usually paper or fabric. Printing techniques include monoprint, relief (linoleum or woodcut), screen printing, intaglio, unique and embellished prints.

Print samples explaining the different techniques will be on display at the 3S ArtSpace in Portsmouth during this exhibition.

Submissions online will be judged by Parker Potter, who has organized, curated and/or judged approximately 30 print exhibitions throughout New Hampshire. All works will be judged blindly online in a digital format.

In addition to organizing print exhibitions, Potter served as an art consultant for the UNH School of Law, facilitating the acquisition of nearly fifty prints for display at the school.
