14th International Miniature Print Exhibition, CCP, Sunday, June 4 through Sunday, August 20, 2023
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking recently announced the 14th Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition. This juried competition and exhibition, limited to works that are no more than four square inches (25.8 square cm), encourages artists to explore the miniature print format and provides them with an opportunity for exhibition. This year, CCP received 621 prints from 274 artists with works arriving from 18 countries, including representation by artists in 27 states, and this year’s juror, Ksenia Nouril, Gallery Director at the Art Students League of New York, selected 217 works by 170 artists representing 16 countries and 25 states. In response to the submissions she reviewed, Nouril stated, “The sheer depth and breadth of techniques represented in this exhibition – from straightforward etching and reliefs to a mix of everything in between, including even a few digitally-based works – are a testament to the multifarious state of printmaking today.”

Dorothy is proud to be included in this summer exhibit!

Since its inception in 1997, the competition has attracted entries by more than 1500 artists from around the world and across the U.S.A. The International Miniature Print Competition is held every other year, alternating with CCP’s other biennial, FOOTPRINT International (for prints measuring exactly 12 x 12 in. square).

Ksenia Nouril is a New York-based art historian and curator with in-depth knowledge of global post-war and contemporary art practices and has a proven track record in organizing and implementing impactful cross-cultural programs for diverse audiences. Ksenia was the Jensen Bryan Curator at The Print Center in Philadelphia and is now the Gallery Director and Curator for Exhibitions and Programs for the Art Students League of New York. Ksenia Nouril received her Ph.D. in Art History from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick in 2018.

* Recent Workshop:  Silk Aquatint at  TRURO CENTER FOR THE ARTS at CASTLE HILL

9am - 12pm

Open Studio: Mon - Thurs, 1pm - 4pm
5 sessions on campus

Create beautiful, tonal prints with this painterly printmaking method of making a plate. Learn to construct inexpensive plates of various sizes from plastic and monofilament mesh painted with black acrylic. Work your way back to white by layering polymer gels with brushes and textures. The plate will mirror and resemble your final image. Intaglio printing with non-toxic inks on rag papers yields dense, mezzotint-like surfaces which explore gesture, texture, and tonal effects. A wonderful print experience for all artists.

    This 5-day workshop was held in the brand new printmaking building at Edgewood Farm!

* Recent Workshop: Falmouth Art Center - Creating Encaustic Collagraphs on YUPO

Creating Encaustic Collagraphs on YUPO

Saturday and Sunday, March 26-27, 2022

Using a combination of innovative printmaking materials, participants will create plates with hot wax on Yupo, a synthetic paper support. Images can be painted, stamped, textured, incised, and scraped to produce a high and low plate surface ready to ink as either a relief or intaglio. These plates can be combined with monotype and drypoint, are economical, easily cleaned, stored, and cut with scissors or utility knives. Akua soy-based inks will be used on a variety of print papers including washi (Japanese paper). Both hand and press printing options will be explored as well as the use of multiple color plates, transparency, and chine colle'. Part of the learning experience will include discussions of eastern and western papers, demonstrations, finished examples of all techniques and lots of individual attention. All are welcome; some print experience is helpful, but not necessary.
