Impressions 2012

IMPRESSIONs 12

Open submission print exhibition


Impressions is Ireland’s longest running open submission print exhibition. It encourages,
promotes and showcases the best of printmaking in Ireland. It will take place from September
13 - October 11 2012 in Galway Arts Centre.

Artists are invited to submit up to three prints. All original works in any print medium,
including digital, are welcome. This year’s adjudicator Norman Ackroyd will select the works for
display and award the prizes. Selected works will have to be framed by the artist and will be
collected and returned by Galway Arts Centre.

This year we have changed the format: applicants are asked to send a CD with images of their
prints to us for adjudication to Galway Arts Centre. The 100 selected prints will then be collected at our drop off points around the country. Applicants may submit up to three prints in any print medium on disc, accompanied by this completed application form and the submission fee of €10 per print.
