open call: Southern New England Tiny Print Encounter !

June 30, 2014 at 9:12 pm

It looks like I’m gonna be involved in organizing three different print shows this summer and fall — here’s the first of them…


the Southern New England Tiny Print Encounter

Friday, August 1, 4-8 pm
AS220 Labs Gallery, Lucie Way off Mathewson St, PROVIDENCE.

Open Call: an exchange/swap/show of 3-inch-by-3-inch prints, open to all makers of printed matter, one night only!

Create an edition of 3″x3″ prints (any medium, edition can be as open or variable, or as precise & limited, as you wish). You’ll hang one of your prints on the wall, then you can trade & share the rest with other printmakers from around the region & the country.

AS220’s adjacent Community Printshop will also be open 4-8 on Friday for tours, info, and demonstrations. Prints will be displayed on the gallery walls during AS220’s Gallery Night on Saturday, August 2nd, 5-7pm, and through the end of the month.

If you are wondering, “I might not be —— enough. can I still do this?” or “is —— a valid ‘print’ medium?”, the answer to both those questions is YES, DO IT. (and — if you don’t have a print to trade, come anyways!)

This will take place in the new AS220 Labs Gallery, on Lucie Way off Mathewson St, in collaboration with the AS220 Community Printshop and with RIPExpo: the Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo.

Here’s the event on facebook, & a tumblr announcement, for your reblogging / sharing / inviting needs…

This would not exist without Amze Emmons and Michael Krueger, whose Pint N Print exchange / party / meetup at SGCI inspired this event. Thanks y’all!

[Also, huge shout out to Ruth Orkin, whose awesome 1947 photograph was the basis for my drawing above…]

Back in March in San Francisco, I decided that the fastest way to get to the bar that Pint N Print was at would be to bike in a straight line across the city… It looked good on the map, but in the hilly (mountainous?) landscape of S.F., that doesn’t usually work out well. I showed up at the bar exhausted, sweaty, confused, with very grimy hands after having repaired a blown-out bike tire earlier in the day, & feeling wicked awkward for some reason… but I still had an awesome time, and realized that some kind of print-based social event in a similar vein needed to happen in Providence!

I’m really looking forward to this, especially to getting to meet and trade stuff with printmakers from all over (since folks in town for RIPExpo are going to be there too…)… and to meet people in Providence I’ve never met before. Hope you can make it — tell your artist friends… & start working on your tiny prints… !
