Call for Printed Poetry, a juried gallery show
Early announcement to encourage new work
To coincide with the DownStairs Press publication of Bringing Gifts, Bringing News, Fifty Poems Five Lines Each, a letterpress printed anthology of new poetry, Homewood Studios has made a call to local and distant letter press printers. We invite letter press artists to submit new work which pushes the boundaries of printed poetry.
We anticipate inventive work, on fine papers, with a true printer's attention to subtleties and complexities of the printer's craft, but exploring or inventing new methods of interpreting poetry, and imaginative ways of setting type.
Send up to five images, image list (title, medium, date, sales price), artist's statement, resume and contact info to at Homewood Studios. Please put Printed Poetry in the subject line.
