2019 Green Pea Press Print Exchange


2019 Print Exchange

Call for Entries

Green Pea Press is extending an invitation to printmakers worldwide to participate in our sixth annual International Print Exchange. Printmakers of all skill levels are encouraged to submit an edition of ten original hand-pulled prints in exchange for an assortment of eight different original prints by other participants plus one commemorative print made by Green Pea Press. Of the two remaining prints one will become part of the Green Pea Press permanent collection and one will be used in an exhibition and sale at Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment, the largest independently owned arts facility in the United States.

This year’s theme is CHANGE. We hope this theme will inspire your creative process and be evident in your finished work.
