A 'ghost' can be that image left behind in your screen or stone, threatening to show up where it's not wanted. It can also be those beautiful remnants left behind when you are printing a monotype.
inPrint wants to see them! Show us that ghost print that maybe you secretly like better than the intended print. Resurrect that stencil in a new way. Experiment with an image that just won't leave your screen (before you remesh it) or play with an inkless relief embossment! This call is open to interpretation in how you handle a 'ghost', spooky or not. Mediums welcome include all traditional print forms, photography, cyanotype methods, and anything that involves a hand-made transference. Send us a traditional ghost, or do something completely out of the box with it, as long as it’s a print-related!
Works do not need to be framed, however artists must accept liability for potential damage.
An in-person reception will be considered based on COVID-safety protocols at the time of it’s run, but we will host an Instagram spotlight feature on Hallowe’en weekend! Works will be put up in our studio, with appointment-visiting if possible, as well as hosted online on our KunstMatrix and Etsy. Works for sale *must* be in our physical exhibition.
To register, fill out the Google Form by clicking here, and email us a photo(s) of your works, with the image labeled "(ArtistName).(Title)" (ie. JaneSmith.Untitled). Please be sure that your email headings reference "Spectre of Print".
There is NO FEE to submit or hang! However, inPrint takes a 30% commission of sales of non-member work, so please factor that into your prices. International works accepted but artists are responsible for shipping fees to and from the studio. Space is limited so please let us know if your work is oversized.
inPrint reserves the right to reject any works that are deemed racist, sexist or homophobic in tone.
