2012 National Juried Exhibition: Beyond Printmaking III

National Deadline: November 4, 2011 – Beyond Printmaking is an art competition and exhibition organized by the Landmark Arts and the printmaking area in the Texas Tech University School of Art.

As technology is changing ever more rapidly, many contemporary artists who originally started with printmaking as their primary medium are using interdisciplinary approaches to embrace the needs of time. Contemporary artists find ways to create visually captivating and socially or politically engaging discourses through interdisciplinary approaches.

As much as printmaking has been loved for its traditional resonance, its versatility applied in multimedia does not see limitations. In this third exhibition, we are looking for artists who have a vision of printmaking beyond the traditional practices, who push the technological and conceptual limits of what is considered printmaking.



Open to professional artists living in the U.S. who are 18 and older. All media expanding the notion of printmaking, including time-based and installation, will be considered. An artist’s statement illuminating the artist’s conception of printmaking must be included with the entry. Work must be original and completed within the last 3 years.



$2,500 in cash prizes to be awarded by the Juror at her discretion.
