ABOUT THE COMPETITION:
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking's Footprint International 2016, is an opportunity for the presentation of current trends and innovations in contemporary printmaking within the bounds of the one square foot (12" x 12") configuration. The square format was uncommon in art until the advent of abstraction and presents distinct challenges of composition and expression. Within these precise limits, artists must confront a space and create visual order and formal structure.
Andrew Stein Raftery is a printmaker specializing in narrative scenes of contemporary American life. He was elected to membership in the National Academy in 2009. Andrew is a professor of printmaking at Rhode Island School of Design.Download the Prospectus
