We are thrilled to present our fourth annual ART Off The Wall! This year, we are seeking submissions of limited edition prints from Boston area printmakers.


Julie S Graham (artist, educator and this year’s Berliner Award recipient) will select all work to create a curated collection of prints. During the event, individuals who have purchased a Collector’s Ticket will have the opportunity to take home a piece from the collection.


If selected, artists are expected to submit 3 prints of the same image of which there are multiples. If submitting a 2D work, one of the 3 prints should be framed. Collectors will have the option to take home the framed print (reimbursing the artist for the framing cost) or an unframed print. Collectors will pay $200/ticket. The first print chosen by a Collector will be considered an in-kind donation to the Brookline Arts Center. If more than one print is selected the artist will be reimbursed $100/print.


All selected artwork will be included in the exhibition (April 28-May 12, in conjunction with Brookline Open Studios), in an online gallery and in all digital and printed promotional materials.


Proceeds from this event directly support the BAC’s mission of bringing the community meaningful experiences in the arts. Thank you so much for your donation and commitment to the arts!
