Green Door Printmaking Studio is proud to present the 11th year of their International Print Exchange!
The International Print Exchange 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, the International Print Exchange has received 286 submissions from artists based in 25 countries from all around the world, creating a new record number of both artist submissions and number of prints Green Door Printmaking Studio has ever received in a singular exchange!
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 their archive and exhibition; the second for sale to fund future exchange projects (in return, if sold, the 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 participating printmakers. Every year, prints submitted to the International Print Exchange are also compiled into an artist’s book for both posterity and for sale.
The culminated prints will be exhibited at Banks Mill Studios, from 11th October to 9th November (open 11am - 3pm, closed Tuesdays and Sundays). Members of the public are invited to celebrate the launch on Friday 11th October (5pm - 8pm)!
