Contributing Your Print to
McClain's Catalog and Gallery
Please submit one print per person to be published in the hard copy catalog and shown in the online Gallery.
Because we specialize in relief printmaking supplies, we accept relief prints to show in the gallery. Relief prints include woodblock prints, Moku Hanga (Japanese style woodblock), linocuts, engravings and monotypes or monoprints. We do not accept screen prints, lithographs, etchings, mezzotints or prints using other intaglio processes.
Work is given recognition but there is no payment. The copyrights to all images belong to their respective artists. McClain's will not use the submitted art for any purpose other than display in our catalog or on our web site without the written permission from the artist and we will not release the material in whole or in part to any person or company.
McClain's reserves the right to decide which prints to accept for publication.
IMPORTANT: Please include the following information with your print:
- Size and Technique
- Your Name
- City, State or Province
- Contact Information: web site, instagram or email address
To be considered for inclusion in the next year's catalog, please submit your work by the end of November.
Choose the format that is easiest for you:
Save the file name as: your last name/first name/title.jpg
Size: 1000 x 1000 pixels (14" x 14" or 35.5 x 35.5cm) maximum, or around 1MB.
