(Online Submission and Payment Only - No Cash or Check)

Our annual printmaking exhibit held each August focuses on those artists dedicated to the art of printmaking and the printed arts.  All fine art printmaking mediums including but not limited to, lithography, etching, monotype, relief, screen printing, and photo-etching. 


This exhibit will be juried. Submissions are now CLOSED. Reproduced prints, or "RE:POPs", of submitted pieces may be sold. There is a $5 artist submission fee per piece.  Submissions will be limited to 3 works or less, including triptychs. If you have a larger set please contact Tanner directly. (does not include loose prints.)

This exhibit is open to the public August 2nd - August 18th, with an Opening Reception First Friday, August 2nd from 6-8pm.

SALES POLICY:  SSSA does NOT take commission for art sales.  If a work is purchased during the opening, it will remain on the gallery wall until the following day, when the purchaser may pick it up.  At that time, the artist is welcome to submit a similar-sized piece to take its place on the gallery wall for viewing and potential sale at a reduced rate of $5 submission fee.  If a work is sold during regular gallery hours, the artist will be contacted by the following business day to replace the work, if inclined.  Otherwise, SSSA reserves the right to fill the wall space with a different work.    Based upon our experiences with our cliental, we encourage you to provide lower-cost companion pieces (prints, matted prints, etc.) along with your selected exhibited works that we will keep available for purchase throughout the duration of the exhibition.    *Please note, sales tax will be taken out of the total sale amount.  Please price your works accordingly.  The current Kane County tax rate is 8.25%.  SSSA continues to remain in contact with artists and patrons following our exhibitions.  If SSSA facilitates the sale of any work from an artist previously featured in a SSSA exhibition, we follow a separate commission structure: 70% to the Artist/30% to SSSA.  Additionally, we are happy to offer pick up and delivery services, if necessary, for a small fee depending on the location(s) of pick up and delivery.  Please contact SSSA for a list of delivery fees.  By agreeing to show your work at SSSA you agree to the above sales policies.  Once work is signed in at SSSA, prices cannot be changed, additional works may not be added (unless requested by SSSA), and work may not be removed by the artist prior to the end of the exhibition (unless approved by SSSA).
