Pet Projects – PRINT EXCHANGE
Please join us for the MSS Pet Projects – Print Exchange!
Deadline Extended: October 29th, 2022
Each participant will receive 5 new prints in the mail made by fellow printmakers. If you are interested in participating, email your name and address to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: MSS Pet Projects – Print Exchange
Participants are asked to create an edition of at least 6 prints, paper size no larger than 8½ x11”, using at least one traditional printmaking technique. Martha Street Studio will take care of the distribution of the exchange so that everyone receives 5 prints by other artists. The sixth print will be kept in our print archive.
The theme is Pet Projects, so show us your favourite furry friend, a feathered companion, a scaly sidekick, or go totally wild and share a print project you’ve been fine-tuning for ages. Any unfettered interpretation of the theme is strongly recommended!
