INK! Print Rally 2022 Call for Submissions

6th annual INK! Print Rally

Call to Artists  2022

On Sept.10th, 2022 Emerge will host the 6th annual INK! Print Rally next to our downtown Coeur d’Alene gallery. 

Community members are invited to stop by between 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm and enjoy interactive printmaking booths with activities for all ages led by local artisans and makers as well as live music.

We will also have food trucks on scene and a beer garden. 

The center of the event is our printmaking event wherein large-scale prints are created throughout the evening using 5’ x 4’ carved wood panels, an asphalt roller, and fabric. 

This year, we are exploring the theme of  Underground.  

“Underground” is defined as ;

1: a subterranean space or channel 

2: an underground city railway system 

3a: a movement or group organized in strict secrecy among citizens especially in an occupied country for maintaining communications, popular solidarity, and concerted resistive action pending liberation 

b : a clandestine conspiratorial organization set up for revolutionary or other disruptive purposes especially against a civil order 

c : an unofficial, unsanctioned, or illegal but informal movement or group  especially : a usually avant-garde group or movement that functions outside the establishment

The process:  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 Underground and join us in this unique event.

About Emerge: We are a collective art experience engaging all members of the community in a variety of high quality creative outlets  while offering a platform for emerging artists to cultivate their careers as professionals.
