The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s 13th Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition opens on Sunday, June 6, 2021 with an online reception and awards presentation from 2-4 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 International Miniature Print Competition is held every other year, alternating with CCP’s other biennial, FOOTPRINT International (for prints measuring exactly 12 x 12 in. square).
