This black-tie-optional event will combine live and silent auctions in a festive, upscale venue that includes music, fine food and drink. Artwork will be on display at BMW of Hawaii from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., February 19-23, 2016.

Donkey Mill Art Center (DMAC) is proud to announce our 1st Biennial Juried Statewide Exhibition 2016, WOOD INK FIBER, open to artists working in Hawai’i in the medium of woodblock printing. This exhibition will be featured at DMAC May 6 to July 9, 2016.

The woodcut print is as old in the islands as the patterns that decorate pre-contact kapa cloth, and as new as patterns carved into plywood with a rotary tool. The use of wood, pigment, and paper in many traditions continues to be a vital art form. The focus of this exhibition will be to explore woodcut printing as currently practiced in Hawai’i.

Artists in Hawai’i working with the medium of woodblock printmaking—either western style or Japanese Moku Hanga—are invited to submit up to three prints. All artwork must be original and created after January 1, 2015. Submissions must not have been previously shown in other exhibitions, galleries, or online. University students are encouraged to apply.

The work to be included in the exhibition will be selected by the juror, John Buck, on March 18; artists will be notified via email on March 23, 2016.

The juror, Mr. Buck, will award prizes of $500, $350, and $200.

Here are the prospectus and the entry form. Please download the form and either (1) fill it out on your computer and return it by email, paying the entry fee online; or (2) print the form; fill it out by hand, and then return it by mail with a check.
