As part of the upcoming “Last Best Print Fest” the ZACC Printshop is hosting it’s eighth annual portfolio exchange. All printmakers are invited to submit an edition of 12 prints based on the theme "Lost and Found". Of the edition of twelve, ten of the prints will be redistributed to other participants in a random selection process. One print will be on display, in the ZACC Community Art Gallery, April 13th through May 4th, as part of LBPF exhibition/silent auction (a fundraiser for the ZACC Printshop). The last will be retained as part of a complete set for the ZACC Printshop Archive.
For this exchange we invite you to interpret the theme "Lost and Found" as narrowly or broadly as you want and submit your strongest and most compelling print.
The exchange is open to all printmakers. Editions should consist of twelve impressions numbered 1/12 to 12/12, using any archival material. If you cannot make it to the ZACC to pick up your portfolio in person, include a self addressed stamped envelope, big enough for ten 11 x 14 inch prints.
Paper size: 11” x 14” - prints can be full bleed
Edition size: 12; numbered 1/12 to 12/12 (no proofs or editions larger than 12)
Media: All forms of printmaking are accepted.
Labeling: In pencil, clearly print artist’s name, title, and media on the back of each print.
Prints must be the original artwork of the submitting artist, and must be dry at the time of submission. The portfolio organizers reserve the right to refuse entry of any submission that fails to conform to the portfolio guidelines.
To participate in the Portfolio Exchange we require that you register through Submittable by March 26th 2018.
Portfolios will be due by March 26th 2018. They can be submitted to The Zootown Arts Community Center, 235 North 1st. Missoula, MT. 59801.
Collated portfolios can be picked up on April 13th after 5:30 during our, 2nd Friday, Art Opening. Portfolios will be held at the ZACC for 1 month. All work that is not picked up in 1 month will be donated to the ZACC Print Shop.
