For three decades, the Parkside National Print Exhibition has shown some of the finest examples of original (small) prints from artists nationwide, and it is one of the longest-running competitive print exhibitions in the Midwest.

About Parkside Galleries

We are educationally-driven with thematically-focused, interdisciplinary exhibitions. Although we do not have the staff to actively review all exhibition submissions, we invite artists to introduce themselves by sending an email with a link to a website address. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting work, especially if it intersects with our educational mission.
