7th annual juried print exhibition, REMARQUE NEW GROUNDS, PRINTSHOP, ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO
Established in 1996 as New Grounds by its director Regina Held, Remarque/New Grounds is one of the first completely non-toxic print workshops in the world. The award-winning print institution was first operated in Albuquerque’s rural South Valley and moved to its current 4000 square foot location in historic Nob Hill along Route 66 in March 2000.
Remarque features a large selection of original works on paper such as etchings, monotypes, relief prints, gravure and mezzotints by its studio members and a selected group of well-known international printmakers from Europe, Japan and Latin America. Subject matters and styles range from contemporary to traditional with hundreds of framed and unframed works to choose from. Exhibitions generally rotate once a month, with an opening reception on the first Friday of the month. Each year, Remarque holds an open call for the Annual Juried Print Exhibition. The 7th Annual Juried Print Exhibition opens December 6th and is on view through January 25, 2020.

7th Annual International Print Exhibition Juror’s Statement
Chosen applicants are prime examples of the diversity possible through the medium of printmaking. Not only to they vary in technique, but also in surface and broad concepts. Special attention was given to works that took a specific technique, and fully exploited its potential – either by incorporating another process, or by allowing the simplicity of the image to solidify the composition. Selections feature local, national, and international artists, all working to push the mediums forward through advancements in technology, technique, and available sundries. It is important to note that through all these advancements, the weight and presence of the hand and tradition is never lost. Congratulations to all those selected for the 7th Annual International Print Exhibition at Remarque.
Myles Calvert, Juror, November 2019
