Call out: PROOF - printmaking exhibition opportunity, Devon Guild of Craftsmen

Description

PROOF (18 January – 8 March 2020)
 
Proof - an argument or sufficient evidence for the truth of a proposition.
In this time of global political and environmental unrest and change, as we become more mindful about gender, age, mental health and climate change and as we move into a new decade we are asking printmakers to respond to this theme:
 
This is an opportunity to have a voice; have your say; set out your ‘manifesto’ for the coming decade.  What would you like to pledge to change or do for the world? Or what question would you like to pose to the world if you could? Your proposition can be ambitious, gutsy or personal and intimate. They can be addressing the world, your generation, your locality, yourself. Or you could choose to represent and speak on behalf of a group or organisation.
 
We have chosen print as an art form as it is about verbal content, the notion of language and creative expression. We are interested in what you have to say and we are also interested in how you express yourselves creatively; how you consider the format, how you handle the space around the letters.
