The 2013 North American Print Biennial is Coming!

Okay, all my inked up friends, it's that time when we hunker down and enter any and all the print competitions we can, but one does rise to the top of our register, and its the North American Print Biennial. Although the Cafe Management is handling the competition's entry format - (really, we must address and protest this particular group's difficult entry procedures), the show promises to be a spectacular grouping of all of us who live and breathe ink. Bon chance!

Juror: Dennis Michael Jon, Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Jon is associate curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
