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.
