Uncommon Prints x Common Matrices

Eligibility:

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our February – March, 2022 group exhibition juried by Cathie Ruggie Saunders (artist, educator, Professor, Adjunct.  at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Visual Communication Design Department and Professor + Chair at Saint Xavier University, Art and Design Department)

This exhibition will be held at Woman Made Gallery located at 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608 in the Pilsen neighborhood. 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Woman Made Gallery seeks artworks in any medium that explore the concept and techniques of a transfer in new or unique ways.

The tradition of printmaking embraces using a matrix as a master surface from which to take an impression.  Typical matrices would be wood (as in relief printing), Bavarian limestone or aluminum plates (as in lithography), copper or zinc (as in etching, engraving, or mezzotint), and a silkscreen frame and stencils (as in screen printing or serigraphy).

However, if we open up this practice, we might consider so many more common methods of making “marks.”  After a spring shower, walking through a puddle leaves “prints” of the soles of your shoes (or your bare feet) on the sidewalk.  Holding a hot iron a bit too long on a piece of fabric will result in a freshly “printed” burn on the garment.  Eating a voluptuous summer peach will transfer brilliant pink juice onto the napkin that wipes your mouth.

Finger and handprints using earth pigments and plant berries have been used since the Lascaux cave markings in Paleolithic times.  Babies are often documented with their fingerprints or footprint.  Your skin on those appendages is a matrix you carry with you forever.  Have you ever thought of incorporating its artistic potential into your work?

For this exhibition, the juror seeks artwork in any medium that explores the concept or technique of a transfer in new or unique ways, as in the examples above, or in combination with traditional printmaking methods.

The juror is interested in work that investigates:

  • Using unconventional materials that push the boundaries of what is typically considered a printmaking matrix.
  • An awareness of the natural world and human body as potential for artmaking.
  • Where the intersection of prescriptive and informal printmaking practices merge or collide.
  • If quality work is being produced through methods that honor tradition but also bring a contemporary perspective to the definition of the printmaking discipline

ABOUT THE JUROR

Cathie Ruggie Saunders is an artist, educator and mentor. She currently teaches in the Visual Communication Design Department at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is the Chair of the Art and Design Department at Saint Xavier University, Chicago IL. She holds an MFA and MA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a BA from the Northwestern University.

TYPA Artist in Residence

Description of the residency program

This unique residency will pair the unique resources of TYPA’s print museum and paper art studio with the academic research and pedagogical opportunities of Pallas University. Set in the city of Tartu, UNESCO’s Creative Cities of Literature 2019, and the upcoming European Capital of Culture 2024, the residency will provide artists with the time and space for new projects, work and research. The project seeks to promote an environment of reflection, community and play within an inspiring environment that supports innovative art practices.  

 

Our 2022 continues to be fully integrated into the facilities and operation of the print museum and paper art studio. We are looking for artists to bring fresh perspectives and ways of working with print and paper. We are looking for both experienced printmakers and artists with their own practices, whether that be new media, sculpture, audio-artists, painters etc. We can offer a wide range of printmaking practices (letterpress, etching, relief, screenprinting and more), dark-room photography, bookbinding and support for the artist to develop their own projects. However, due to limited resources, we can only offer letterpress to artists already working in this field. We are particularly excited to receive applications for projects in experimental print, book arts, community collaborations and more.

We can offer a supported public outcome, whether this be a workshop, artist talk or exhibition. We are working with the local university, Pallas, local galleries, the Aparaaditehas cultural space and international organisations to connect TYPA artists with the creative community of Tartu.

 

Duration of residency:

January 2022 - December 2023 

2 months minimum - 4 months maximum

 

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance 

We are looking for artists who wish to explore print, paper and bookmaking, and with a research or pedagogy background. Although they do not have to be professional printmakers, they should have some wish to develop a project using TYPA’s facilities. 

We have a large collection of letterpress printing machines and type, as well as other forms of print equipment - such as an etching press, a pre-press camera and mimeographs.
An example of some of our equipment on offer can be found here.
We also have an equipped papermaking kitchen with a Hollander beater, various sized papermaking moulds and deckles. We have a shared studio, with ample space for larger projects, where artists can work alongside Estonian printmakers. Artists will have an introduction to the equipment needed for their project as well as access to the museum technical staff who can assist with any queries. We are particularly excited to receive applications for projects in experimental print, book arts, community collaborations and more.

 

Accommodation  

Accommodation takes the form of a basic apartment in the centre of Tartu. The apartment contains a double bed, private bathroom and shower, a kitchen and desk space. The apartment is centrally located but have small bathrooms and are modestly decorated. Partners are welcome, however, the apartment is not large enough for a family. Pictures can be found here.

 

Studio / workspace

Artists will have full access to a large shared studio space, with a large table space, exposure unit, etching press, relief press, sink and use of shared equipment and inks.

Artists are free to use the museum equipment, bearing in mind that the museum is open for visitors from Wednesday to Sunday and machinery is required in certain museum demonstrations or workshops.

 

Fees and support  

The fees for the residency are 350 Euros per month which includes:

accommodation, use of the studio and equipment, technical support, exhibition space and promotion.

Specialist equipment, tools etc. will have to be purchased by the artist, but please discuss with needs with us, and we can see what arrangements can be made. 

We will be able to provide artists with any written support for funding.

 

Expectations towards the artist  

Artists are expected to work in a respectful manner, taking responsibility of their own safety and the safety of those around them, and keeping shared working areas clean. The Artist will be expected to make one public outcome during their residency time; this can take the form of an artist talk, exhibition, open studio, workshop, etc. We also encourage the integration into Tartu’s creative community -through hosting artists dinners, tours and connecting artists to local events.
