|The Print Exchange
Welcome to our Four Oceans Press hand-pulled print exchanges. Please read all details
before signing up for an exchange.
How it works
These are simple print exchanges. You print an edition of 26 hand-pulled prints in any traditional
print media – Woodblock, Linoleum, Serigraph, Lithograph or Intaglio. (Of course, you will not
print it from your computer or the local copy shop). You will have a few months between sign
up and deadline so you have plenty of time to be creative and explore the theme.
Send the prints as soon as they are finished and dry. We will coordinate and collate the prints and
return to you a massive pile of prints from many different artists. The extra set will go into
our permanent archive and may be used for future projects.
Details vary on some exchange projects and are noted on each page.
If you think you may not be able to complete the exchange, please do not sign up for it –
everyone is counting on each other. We all understand that life sometimes gets in the way of art,
but please consider whether or not you have time for this before you commit yourself. If
something comes up and you will not be able to complete the exchange – please let us
know as soon as you know. Each participant will be turning in a full set of prints and will want
to get a full set back.
We will communicate with each participant by e-mail. [email@example.com or
firstname.lastname@example.org ] Communication is essential. If you have questions or
problems – let us know.
|After the exchange
The Archive, the calendar project, book projects and more...
All prints will be scanned and placed on our website for permanent display with a link to your
website (if you don’t have one – see below).
Four Oceans Press has published Calendars in the past which include the work of selected
artists, but in an effort to be more inclusive and honor all of our artists we are planning to begin
to document each exchange series in a complete book. Details coming soon...

Seasons - 2009 Calendar.
