The Ottawa School of Art (OSA) Gallery is pleased to host its eighth international biennale juried exhibition of miniature prints featuring print artists from 20 countries from around the world. This year’s mini-print exhibition has 355 works and 135 artists from 21 countries. The exhibition will run from October 19 to November 22, 2020, at the OSA’s Main Campus Gallery, 35 George St in the ByWard Market.
Artists were asked to submit their small-format prints (maximum of 10 cm by 10 cm) for exhibition in the OSA’s main gallery, with artists working in any print medium, with only original artwork being exhibited.
An invited jury of three art professionals with printmaking expertise, Guillermo Trejo – Instructor for OSA, Sam Loewen – Creative Director, Studio Sixtysix – Contemporary Art Gallery Farouk Kaspaules – Instructor for OSA, will be asked to select one print from six categories: Relief, Intaglio, Lithography, Screen Print, New Media and Director’s pick. OSA will purchase the selected prints and they will become part of OSA’s permanent art collection. The artists whose work is selected will have their entry fees waived for the ninth miniature print biennale exhibition in 2022 and their selected print will be featured prominently in the gallery, in the exhibition catalogue, and online at artottawa.ca.
All prints received for the exhibition will be on display and for sale from October 19 until November 22, 2020 at the OSA’s Main Gallery located at 35 George St. in the ByWard Market. Admission to the OSA’s gallery spaces is always free and everyone is welcome.
