The Mini Print International of Cadaqués
is the most popular and longest running exhibition of miniprints in the world.
The exhibition usually includes around 650 artists from some 50 countries of all the continents.
The technical and formal quality of the works is very high.
This has encouraged us to continue organizing the show year after year since 1981.
Last year, five New Zealand printmakers were selected for this exhibition;
Barbara Graham, Celia Walker, Geoff Tune, Ruby Oakley, and Sue Cooke
but here are the overall winners images:
|William Barnhart (US), Days of Delight|
Drypoint and chine collé
|Danielle Grosbusch (Luxembourg), Verbindlich – III|
Soft ground and aquatint
|Litzco Yamamiya (Japan), One-Man Show|
Etching and aquatint
|Cristina Pérez i Alay (Spain), Combatent|
Etching, drypoint and collage
|Stephen Lawlor (Ireland), Blue Tutu|
|Victoria Westmacott-Wrede (Germany), House in a Village|
In each call, a qualified jury makes a selection of six works.
The award winning artists are invited to have a solo show at Taller Galeria Fort in Cadaqués.
This Mini Print aims to show the exhibition to the largest amount of public.
During recent years it has travelled to various countries
(United States, Japan, Korea, France, England, Ireland, Finland, Andorra,
Mexico, Colombia, Spain, etc.) where it has achieved great success.
Since 1995, the exhibition has been shown annually in L'Etangd'Art Gallery in Bages, France,
and in the UK at the same time as in Cadaqués.
In addition there are national and international shows which may take place sporadically.
Each artist can submit four different prints.
Open to all printmaking techniques and tendencies.
The image must not be bigger than 10x10cm, the paper must not be bigger than 18x18cm.
