    Jurors: Amze Emmons

    Theme:
    This year marks the 100th anniversary of The Print Center. Art In City Hall will host an exhibit of prints produced by The Print Center in the Art Gallery at City Hall. We would like to further celebrate this milestone by extending this opportunity to printmakers in the Philadelphia region in a separate, juried exhibit entitled: A Print in Time.

    A Print in Time asks artists to contribute a series of prints that create a narrative or body of work. A series can be defined as a body of work with a central concept or narrative. A narrative can be left open to interpretation, and may not necessarily reflect representational work.

    All traditional printmaking techniques such as lithography, woodcut, intaglio, etc. are eligible; as well as mixed media, photography, and works that explore the concept of making prints.
    A Print in Time will coincide with The Print Center’s Centennial exhibit in the Art Gallery at City Hall. A joint reception will be announced in the fall. Both print exhibitions are presented in partnership with Panorama: Image-based Art in the 21st Century, the new Philadelphia-area event presented by Main Line Art Center.Panorama is the first annual celebration of the photographic image and its expansive role in contemporary mediums like digital photography, printmaking, video, film, animation, and gaming design. Anchored by Main Line Art Center’s on-site exhibition, Modern Utopias, and a dynamic and interactive evening festival, the 2-month happening features physical and virtual exhibitions, lectures, educational programs led by accomplished artists, and programs presented by Creative Partners, including The Print Center and Art In City Hall.

    About the Jurors:

    Julia Fox

    She received a BA in both art history and studio art from SUNY Albany May 2014. She is currently living in Philadelphia, PA and has recently shown her work in the Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia, PA, the Gallery at Mayfair in Allentown, PA, and Artworks Gallery in Trenton, NJ.

    Her work looks to capture unique architectural qualities of buildings in post-industrial cities in which she has lived by incorporating found materials into painted and often sculptural works.

    Kim Jackson

    She graduated Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in 2011 with her BFA . She has shown her artwork in galleries such as, The Mural Arts Center, RAW artists of Philadelphia and Imperfect Gallery. She has worked with young children teaching art since the age of 16 and currently works with Taller Puertorriqueno and Historic Rittenhousetown as a visual arts instructor and resident artist.
    Her natural and organic style stems from many environmental inspirations such as caves, barnacles, fungi and the ocean. Kim pushes herself to learn the science behind the natural objects she is depicting in her artwork, so she can educate others and encourage environmental preservation and recycling.
    Carlee Myers
    She received a BFA in Curatorial Studies and Fine Art from Moore College of Art & Design. She is currently living in Philadelphia, PA and has recently shown her work at the Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia, PA, Orchard Artworks in Bryn Athyn, PA, the URBN Center in Philadelphia, PA and East End Salon in Philadelphia, PA.

    Her artwork focuses on printmaking as a Way or Do. Approaching printmaking as a Do is a significant part of her process as it is allows her to meditate why and how she relates to the spiritual—a term she uses to describe a divine order, universal energy, god, etc.—through nature. As she uses art-making as a medicinal and meditative practice, much of her work comments on the importance of process.

    Application Fee: $15

    Email ambitiousartists@gmail.com for any questions.

    Submissions: All submissions must be jpegs clearly labeled “Last name_First name#.jpg” All must be at least 72 dpi and no more than 5 MB.
