The Sixth Annual Print Exchange is an un-juried, open themed print exchange open to all members of Second State Press. The print exchange celebrates SIX years of printmaking at Second State Press and is an opportunity for our members to exercise the idea of exchange at the core of our mission.
Eligibility: Any member of Second State Press is welcome to participate. If you are not a member, you may join for an $40 annual membership fee.
Edition Size: The size of the edition is 22 prints. The paper size must 8×10 inches. Please remember to sign and number your prints.
Medium and Paper Size: Original work in any printed mediums e.g. serigraphy, etching, lithography, intaglio, relief, etc. Purely digital prints will not be accepted, but incorporating digital printing into your hand pulled prints are welcome. The paper size is 8×10 inches, prints may incorporate borders or be a bleed, but please only submit prints that fit the 8×10 inches requirement. Other sizes will not be eligible for the exchange. Please also include 22 sheets of glassine slightly smaller than 8×10 inches.
Drop off Date: Prints must be received by Second State Press by Thursday, December 1st between noon and 10 PM.
Exhibition: Each artist will receive a random selection of 20 prints made by other SSP members and a lingering sense of satisfaction that comes from supporting SSP! The first print will be on the walls at SSP for our Annual Silent Auction + Party on December 10th. Prints will be on view December 8th- January 29th. Please allow four weeks for your set of prints. You will receive an email when they are ready to be picked up or mailed for a fee.
