An assortment of prints from the 20:20 Print Exchange by Northern Print studio members and from further afield
The 20:20 Print Exchange began in 2009 as a simple exchange by Hot Bed Press in Salford and Red Hot Press in Southampton where artists swapped prints with one another.
Since then, the exchange has gathered momentum with more studios joining the project and as a result it has now grown to epic proportions. This year 577 artists from 41 workshops have created 14,425 prints which have been shared between the participating artists with some being allocated to the participating studios to sell for fundraising purposes.
Every year Hot Bed Press who now manage the project coordinate a national tour of all of the prints, however we are exhibiting a smaller selection with many having been made by Northern Print's own studio members. Unlike the main exhibition all of our prints are available to purchase at a highly affordable rate so it's an ideal way to freshen your home decor in time for spring (whilst supporting our charitable activities with your contribution!)
This exhibition is an ideal way to find out more about lots of different types of original printmaking from woodcut to etchings by way of screenprinting and drypoint so if you are interested in joining Northern Print as a member this is an ideal way to learn about the processes that we can offer you.
