The Mid-America Print Council is a community of printmakers, papermakers and book artists, whose goal it is to promote awareness and appreciation of the art of making original prints, books, hand-made paper, and drawings and to provide an exchange of technical and critical information on the art of printmaking.
The members of MAPC are invited to submit their most recent work to the annual juried Members Exhibition. This show is hosted by a different institution each year to assist MAPC with their mission to promote awareness of this ever-expanding and complex process.
“Printmaking has a long history
of innovation and adopting other
processes — of seeing the advantages
and the potential of the new process
and embracing it, exploring it, finding
its limits, and questioning its purpose.”
The Exhibit’s Identity
The exhibition presents a unique conversation about the vast possibilities of the print, both the imaginative subject matter and printmaking’s dynamic place in the present. The graphic identity demonstrates the artistry of printmaking from the Midwest Region of the United States and reveals the inner depth of artists’ work through many aptitudes.
