DUE:Prints must be received by July 1st, 2012

 From Print Zero Studio: "You might be asking, “What is an exchange?” Well, each participating artist creates an edition of 15 prints, which are submitted to PrintZero Studios. In return for participation, artists each receive 13 randomly collated prints by other artists from around the world (2 prints are kept for archiving and exhibition). All prints submitted for the exchange will be exhibited at PrintZero Studios Seattle in August."

In conjunction with the exchange artists will automatically be entered into the running for our juried exhibition. Thirty artists will be selected for exhibition and a full color catalog of the selected work will be published. Our juror this year is David Jones, director of Anchor Graphics, Chicago, IL.
