    Call for submissions for PAWA members exhibition

    PAWA invites members to submit works that reflect on contemporary matters using various  printmaking techniques. All works must have a hand pulled elementWe encourage works that relate to issues across a wide spectrum of material cultures, nature, and relationships with the environment.

    Collectively the Pressing Matters that are touched on will tell a story about the constant exchanges between our materials, environments and practices and can be read by viewers as a conversation.

    Artists are welcome to submit up to two prints. Works can be either framed or unframed. Each framed work must be to a professional standard and ready for hanging (see Terms and Conditions for more details). Unframed works must be supported by hard backing such as foam board or cardboard and have the facility to be hung by bulldog clips.
