Call for Printmakers - Last Call, that is!

The Hexagon Gallery is pleased to announce Hexchange, a Baltimore-themed portfolio exchange for emerging printmakers. Hexchange will be on exhibit during the month of October, in conjunction with Second Saturdays, a new initiative from the Station North Arts & Entertainment District to bring community arts and music awareness to the area. Following the exhibition, Hexchange will become a part of the permanent collections at the Hexagon Gallery and Goya Contemporary in Baltimore, as well as the International Printing Museum in Southern California. Hexchange is also receiving promotional support from the Bmore Art Blog, the Contemporary Museum and the Station North Arts & Entertainment District.

There are 50 spots in this portfolio. Register now--spots are filling up! (Hexchange is almost full! artists from Bmore (of course), Philly, NYC, Providence, Portland, Honolulu, Oakland, and more!) All artists participating in the exchange will receive a portfolio of 50 different prints.

Fee: $10 for artists in East and Central time zones, $15 for artists in Mountain and Pacific time zones. Artists outside the continental US will be given a payment estimate upon inquiry. This modest fee will cover constructing portfolio mailers, return postage, and exhibition postcards (also to be sent to each artist prior to the show). Your registration will not be complete until we have received your payment.

Print requirements:
  • Baltimore-themed, edition of 55
  • 11x15 inches
  • paper choice and bleed are up to you
  • remember to sign and number prints

***Important*** All editions must be received, with your own interleaving, by September 18th, 2009. No extensions, as this will give us just enough time to collate, construct cases, and hang the exhibition.
