Block prints including woodcuts and linoleum cuts.

Lithographs.

Color prints in any of the above media, except when colored subsequent to printing or retouched.

Monotypes are not considered eligible.

MATS: All prints must be matted in hinged white mats in one of the following sizes: 14 1/4" x 19 1/4", 16" x 22", 22" x 28".

NUMBER OF ENTRIES:  Artists may enter a total of six prints in any number of the above media or six prints in any one medium.

All prints will be hung.  The Print Club, however, reserves the right to refuse any prints it may consider objectionable.

TITLES: Each print must have printed or legibly written on the back of the mat, the title, name of artist, medium, price and number to correspond to number on the entry blank.

Prints must be received at the Albright Art Gallery, Buffalo, N.Y., not later than Monday, March 30, 1936.

Prints will be returned following the close of the exhibit, April 25, 1936.  No prints can be removed before that date.

SALES: A sincere effort will be made to make sales during the exhibit.  It is hoped that the artist will endeavor to keep the prices as low as possible.  No commission will be charged on sales.
