Southbank Printmakers Mini Print Exhibition 2024 

 1 October 2024 to 5 January 2025

 

Printmakers are invited to submit work for the Southbank Printmakers Mini Print Exhibition 2024. Now in its 5th year, this ever-popular independent gallery-led show will again be home to a range of exciting mini prints from across the UK and beyond, giving both professional and amateur printmakers the chance to exhibit, sell and become known in our gallery and online shop. Artists who are selected to exhibit also have the chance to win prizes offered by our sponsors Jackson’s Art, Ironbridge Fine Arts and John Purcell Paper.

 

The exhibition will run at our gallery in Gabriel’s Wharf on the Southbank from Tuesday 1 October to Sunday 1 December 2024.  There will be an opening private view and closing awards night.  All works selected for hanging  will also be included in the SBP online shop from Tuesday 1 October 2024 to Sunday 5 January 2025.

 

Submission Guidelines

Print Submission Requirements

  • Submissions are invited from artists working in any recognisable hand-produced printmaking technique, such as screen printing, lithography, etching, engraving, collagraph, monotype, block printing, woodcut etc.

  • Digital prints made with an inkjet or laser printer are not accepted. However, digital processes can be used to enhance prints that are traditionally printed.

  • Each artist may submit up to three entries. Entry costs £18 for one print, £30 for two prints and £45 for 3 prints.

  • The print image must be contained within a square area of 10cm x 10cm on a paper size measuring exactly 15cm x 15cm. 

  • There is no specific theme, however, as Southbank Printmakers Gallery is open to the public, we reserve the right not to display anything we deem to be unsuitable.

  • All works will be prepared for exhibition by Southbank Printmakers in a white mount and hung in panels on the back walls of our gallery.

  • All prints must be signed, numbered, and titled by the artist, in pencil, beneath the image.

  • All entries must be original and created within the last 3 years.

 

Sale of Work

  • The Southbank Printmakers Mini Print Exhibition is a selling exhibition, and artists are advised that 40% commission will be retained by Southbank Printmakers Gallery so please set your selling prices bearing this in mind.

  • The print price is at the artists’ discretion, but we advise you to consider customers’ preferences when pricing for sale.  As a guide for the purposes of selling your work, the average price of prints sold in our past 4 exhibitions was £60.  

  • If selected the artist will be asked to send another of the same print for the browser, also on paper measuring 15x15cm, backed with a stiff card, wrapped in cellophane and with a label on the back with name, title, medium and price. If the print is a monotype then a similar themed monotype will be acceptable. 

  • All payments for sales of prints will be made by Southbank Printmakers Gallery to the artist after the end of the exhibition.

 

Inclusion in the online shop

All works selected for hanging will be included in the SBP online shop unless we receive specific instructions from the artist not to do so. Works selected for the browser will not be in the online shop. The online Mini Print Shop will remain open for a further 5 weeks and close on Sunday 5 January 2025.
