The International Print Exchange exhibition is a unique opportunity to see work from printmakers all around the world, to explore various printmaking methodologies and practices and to purchase quality prints at an affordable price.
This year we will be showcasing the prints that take part in the exchange online via a virtual exhibition as well as a physical exhibition at our studio.

How it Works
Each participating printmaker creates and submits a limited edition of ten prints specifically for the exchange. These prints are created using a recognised fine art printmaking technique with archival materials. Of the ten prints submitted, Green Door Printmaking Studio keeps two; the first for our archive and exhibition; the second for sale to fund future exchange projects (in return, if sold, this printmaker will receive free entry to the following year's exchange).
The remaining prints are randomised and sorted, and each printmaker receives eight random prints in return from all printmakers all over the world.
