I’ve been invited to a black and white dinner.  On first glance, I assumed that it was just a black & white dress code, but, in fact, it is THE MENU that is color limited.  Each of us has been asked to bring a dish.  I am scrounging for ideas.  I have crostini with goat cheese and black olives, pasta with poppy seed infused oil & the ubiquitous black & white cookie or cupcake.  I’m open to ideas.  This next Call wants your black & white one-of-a-kind prints.  Limiting the palate requires you to up your game.  Whatcha got?

Check out this Call for Entries from Rubber City Prints (Akron, OH) for Divergent Ink, a black & white international print exhibit.  This media specific show offers a world-class juror.  Take a look…

In the northern hemisphere nature’s color continues to fade as the world goes to sleep during our transition from autumn to winter. To prepare our minds for the absence of color and the beginning of winter solstice the world of color becomes secondary as we prepare for a blanket of white to cover the north . . . . Conceptual creation becomes one of highest importance during this time and in this show we hope to gather a divergent collection of fine art prints that display the highest quality of imagery using only black & white ink.” — Rubber City Prints
