4th Annual INK! Print Rally | CALL TO ARTISTS
On Sept.12th, 2020 Emerge will host the Fourth annual INK! Print Rally right next to our downtown Coeur d’Alene gallery. From 1:00 to 7:00pm, community members will enjoy interactive printmaking booths with activities for all ages, local artisans and makers, live music, food trucks, and a beer garden. In the center of the event, large-scale prints are created all evening using 5’ x 4’ carved wood panels, an asphalt roller, and fabric.
Due to Covid-19, Emerge will be keeping a close eye on the CDC recommendations for outdoor events of this kind in September. We will take every precaution to insure our artists and patrons safety.
This year, we are exploring the theme of Awakening. noun. the act of waking from sleep. a revival of interest or attention. a recognition, realization, or coming into awareness of something: a rude awakening to the disagreeable facts. a renewal of interest in religion, especially in a community; a revival.
The theme is analogous to the process of steamrolling sheets of carved wood: bearing stress upon fabric, ink, and wood to create a piece of art that speaks of the artist, the context, and the process. We invite you to share your interpretation of Awakening and join us in this unique event.
Please feel welcome to contact us with any questions.
