Big Ink: Call for Entry
February 1 - June 6$600
The Firefly Artists are thrilled to have Big Ink back at The Firefly Artists. BIG INK hosts large-scale woodblock printmaking events across the United States and we have been lucky to have them visit us in the summers of 2018 and 2019. Artists that are interested in carving a woodblock of at least 24 by 36 inches are invited to participate. First, you submit a design for consideration. If selected, you’ll have two months to carve a woodblock based on your submission.
BIG INK will transform the art studio in the gallery into a print studio featuring The Big Tuna: a custom-designed giant mobile press. The public is invited to attend, witness the spectacle, and learn more about the process. The event spans two days with 8-10 artists printing their works of art each day.
The printed pieces will then be on display in the Darcy Arts Center on the second floor of Firefly Art Gallery through September 3, 2022.
Stay tuned for information on how to enter the call!
