UnEditioned 

UnEditioned is an international juried exhibition focused on the unique print. Participating artists are invited to share their expanded practice in printmaking. Submitted work should substantially incorporate printmaking techniques (this can include traditional methods or newer technologies), but cannot be editioned in the traditional sense. This is an online exhibition and the work can take any format or dimension. 

 

On view on Manhattan Graphics Centers’ website 1 Jun – 31 Jul 2021.
