The New Orleans Community Printshop is excited invite you to participate in our upcoming exhibition celebrating the vast array of printmaking in New Orleans, and the democratic nature of printing:
POST NO BILLS
a collection of hand printed posters, prints and ephemera
in conjunction with the exciting Southern Graphics Conference coming to town!
Opening Reception Friday March 16th 7-10 pm,
When to Submit:
Please drop off prints during one of these three days: Thursday March 9th 6-10 pm, Sunday March 11th 1-5 pm or Tuesday March 13th (6-10 pm) (very last chance!)
YOU MUST PUT YOUR NAME AND PHONE NUMBER ON THE BACK OF THE WORK, IN PENCIL, TO HELP FACILITATE ITS RETURN.
What to submit:
we are looking for prints from any artists working in Louisiana – the only parameters are: it must be a print, and it must have been made in Louisiana. It can be an etching, a woodcut, a monoprint, a letterpressed print, a poster, a fine art piece, an invitation……
How will it hang? work will be hung with a system of acetate and pins that do not put pinholes in the work, or that sticky stuff that leaves a greasy stain.
what is ‘ephemera’?
ever printed on a skateboard? a wooden box? a shoe? we want to display the versatility of print-media, so bring it down and we will either hang it or display it on a shelf/pedestal.
Can i submit more than one piece?
yes! but due to potential limitations of space, please limit yourself to 3 pieces, and we cannot guarantee all three will hang. note: SMALL PIECES (less than 8.5 x 11) are always needed when hanging a poster wall (it’s like playing tetris, very slowly) so bring as many of those as you’ve got!
I have this neat print my friend made, can i put that in?
as long as you have the artist’s permission to sign our exhibition form and it was printed in Louisiana, sure!
