IMPRINT 2016 Call For Entry

Call For Entries: IMPRINT 2016
Maryland Art Place’s Annual Print Project
Application Deadline: Midnight - March 1, 2016

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to announce an open ‘Call to Artists’ for the 2016 edition of “IMPRINT,” an annual program initiated by the MAP staff in 2012 to highlight one contemporary artist who has demonstrated excellence within their selected media. This will be the fifth year of the program. MAP’s Program Advisory Committee (PAC), Staff, and Board of Trustees collectively review all submissions to select IMPRINT artists.

IMPRINT Goal: To support artists by increasing the visibility of their work and by promoting sales. IMPRINT artists benefit by being highlighted on MAP’s website and through the sale of a funded artist print reproduction.  MAP will also sell the reproduction at its annual benefits or offer them as sponsor incentives, which furthers the artist name and work. The selected artwork will officially launch in conjunction with MAP’s Annual Spring Benefit, Out of Order.

General IMPRINT Guidelines & Information: 
• MAP only accepts 2-D works for replication - photography, painting, mixed media or similar welcomed.
• All works must be less than or equal to 16” X 24” in scale.
• All replications will be in an edition of 100.
• All replications will receive a ‘chop or seal’ noting Maryland Art Place as the publisher.
• All replications will be printed on an agreed upon archival fine art paper.
• MAP will cover printing expenses and will deduct this expense off the top of the sale price, before the split of proceeds 50/50.
• MAP will continue to promote both artist and artwork beyond the artist’s selected IMPRINT year.
