Starting in 2021 as an online exhibit, PrintAustin’s 5×5 continues to be an annual juried exhibition. The concept of 5×5 is to invite artists to submit five works. Artists who choose to submit to this call have at least five pieces of work that can be presented together and stand out enough to be chosen among all the entries. Five artists are selected by juror to display five of the works submitted, hence the name 5×5.
