Call for Submissions: exchange details

Ottawa Gatineau Printmakers Connective and the Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists are partnering together for a Print Exchange in which participating artists will have the opportunity to create a new edition of prints, exchange work with other printmakers, and celebrate two unique communities of artists. This exchange will be structured to involve 14 artists from each city to each create an edition of (16) prints. The theme is “Language”, and should be interpreted broadly to encompass anything the artist feels relates; artists can explore the concept of language, whether it is visual language, symbols, the alphabet, language of colour, language of printmaking, etc. Participating artists for the exchange will be selected by juries in the respective cities.
