PRESENTATION OF THE ASSOCIAZIONE NAZIONALE INCISORI ITALIANI

 

The Associazione Nazionale Incisori Italiani (Italian National Engravers Association), was founded in Vigonza (Padua) in 1999 thanks to a group of artists, estimators and collectors who intended to promote and foster the original graphic arts.

The Association gladly welcome Engravers, Supporters and Followers.

Joining the Association is free of any obligation and it offers some opportunities, like free attendance at the collective exhibition taking place every year, in November and December, in the Da Peraga Castle, under the Patronage of the Vigonza Council Town.
During the exhibition, visitors interested in buying works of art, will be exhorted to contact the authors directly, because the event is not aimed at the selling of the engravings, but only at the promotion of the artists and of their graphics.
Free guided tours for groups and for students, object lessons on how making an etching engraving, will be held as well throughout the entire period of the event in days and times previously agreed.
To encourage the diffusion of graphic arts, every day and for the entire duration of the exposition, one of the visitors, chosen by lot, will be given an engraving offered by the members of the association.
The poster of the exhibition, mentioning the members’ names and addresses, is always published in art magazines.
The annual membership fee is of € 45,00.
Every member receives the personal membership form to take part in various initiatives scheduled during the year and thus he can also take advantage of some further opportunities (appointment of the Member of the Year and/or Honorary Member, on-line advertisement, mounting of personal and collective exhibitions, taking part in different types of advertising, inclusion in the association website, and so on)..

 

The Association acts neither to get a profit nor to publish on behalf of a third party.

 

During the Collective exposition an exhibit hall is entirely dedicated to a member’s works.

The Association arranges four graphic arts contests every year:

1) “FIRST PRIZE ITALIAN GRAPHIC ARTS” (January 10 to February 28) OPEN TO ALL ENGRAVERS.

What is typical of this contest is that it doesn’t undergo any restriction. One room of the annual exhibition is dedicated to the winner.

It’s a black and white book, of 488 pages, in which every artist and his/her engravings are represented on six pages each. The layout is very similar to the one chosen for the previous edition and quote some remarks about the topic, the graphic art contests, by the Italian Engravers Vitaliano
Angelino, Maria Grazia Renier, Arianna Loscialpo, Bruno Missieri, Graziella Nucci, Giuseppe Aliprandi, Giuseppina Lesa, Carlo Iacomucci, Milvia Bortoluzzi, Sonia De Franceschi, Claudia Asoli and Veronica Longo. The catalogue also shows the works of the contest FIRST PRIZE ITALIAN GRAPHIC ARTS – 2011, with captions and data of all the competitors, and information about the winners of the previous editions.

The new catalogue “INCISORI ITALIANI CONTEMPORANEI”is being published in color.
Reservations are welcome.

A group of original graphic arts estimators has founded the “FRIENDS OF THE ITALIAN NATIONAL ENGRAVERS ASSOCIATION”, and supporters and followers may certainly join it.
