The Print Center’s 87th Annual International Competition features works by 43 of the finest contemporary artists working today. This year the competition was juried by Irene Hofmann, Phillips Director & Chief Curator, SITE Santa Fe. The Print Center’s Annual International Competition is one of the most prestigious and oldest juried exhibitions in the United States. This online exhibition presents portfolios of the work of the 33 semi-finalists and 10 finalists. It provides a unique opportunity to view the work of local, national and international artists in a forum which emphasizes individual talent and expressiveness rather than a specific exhibition topic. Hofmann reviewed over 2,700 images submitted by 549 artists. Taryn McMahon, Lydia Panas and Soledad Salamé were selected for solo exhibitions, which are on view at The Print Center June 7 – July 27, 2013. Awards for the competition will be announced on July 1.
Philadelphia’s Print Center hosts great print exhibitions, among other things, and you should definitely pay them a visit when you’re in town. I’m lucky to be a Semi-finalist in their annual competition this year; you can see all of the artists online here. And the three solo exhibitions are on view through the end of July.
