The Print Center Celebrates the Winners of its 94th ANNUAL International Competition



The Print Center celebrated the winners last week of its 94th ANNUAL International Competition, one of the longest-running photography and printmaking contests in the nation. Selected from a pool of over 500 international artists, three winners were awarded solo exhibitions at The Print Center that ran from January 17 to March 13.

Mellon Fellow for Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the St. Louis Art Museum. Cotton and Wagner reviewed submissions from 512 artists across 45 states and 29 countries worldwide, which they narrowed down to 25 semifinalists and 10 finalists (including the three solo exhibition winners). The work of the 35 finalists and semifinalists was displayed at The Print Center, located at 1614 Latimer St., as part of their 94th ANNUAL gallery.
