The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s 13th Biennial Miniature Print International Exhibition opens on Sunday, June 6, 2021 with a socially distanced opening in the Grace Ross Shanley Gallery from 12:00 – 4:00 PM.

The exhibition runs through August 29, 2021. This juried exhibition, limited to works that are no more than four square inches (25.8 square cm), encourages artists to explore the miniature print format. Since its inception in 1997, the Miniature Print Exhibition has showcased the works of artists worldwide with renowned print curators and collectors serving as jurors.

The Miniature Print International Competition is held every other year, alternating with CCP’s other biennial, FOOTPRINT International (for prints measuring exactly 12 x 12 in. square).

 

Exhibition Juror

Christina Weyl is an independent art historian, who writes about midcentury American printmaking and women artists. She earned a BA from Georgetown University and an MA and PhD in Art History from Rutgers University. Prior to graduate school, she was the director of Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl, a gallery in New York City representing the print publications of the Los Angels-based artists’ workshop, Gemini G.E.L. In 2019, Christina released the book The Women of Atelier 17: Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York published by Yale University Press which follows nine women, including Louise Bourgeois and Louise Nevelson, who worked at Atelier 17, the avant-garde printmaking workshop located in New York City between 1940 and 1955. She is currently working on a new book and exhibition project “Living in Color: The Explosion of Color in American Printmaking, 1935-65.”
