III : Printed Illustration

Organized by SONSGALLERY (formerly Art Gallery J316), the exhibition for printed illustrations, with various themes, is now open for submissions. The field of two-dimensional visual art has been enlarged with the development of diverse computer programs and printing techniques. Nowadays, printed illustrations are not only produced for commercial design, but are collected and recognized as artworks, as well. Sonsgallery invites you to take part in a new field of modern visual art.

Works selected for the Sonsgallery exhibition of printed illustration may be eligible for the Sonsgallery Award and the Audience Award.
