Print Exchange 2013

Earlier this year I participated in Print Exchange 2013, another great project from the Art House Co-op, the same guys & gals who bring you The Sketchbook Project!

The Print Exchange 2013 was a chance for 500 printmakers from around the world to make an edition of 12 (or more) prints around the theme “The Drive Home…”. Each artist sent 12 prints to the Art House Co-op, who kept two (for exhibits in CA and NY), and sent the other ten prints to other printmakers who participated in the exchange. This meant that I got ten beautiful, limited edition prints from talented artists to hang up in my studio! They are all so different, seeing how each artist interpreted the theme was really fun, and the variety of techniques is inspiring. Here are the ten prints I was lucky enough to receive:

And here’s the print I created for the exchange. Whenever I drive home I think about seeing my happy little pup’s face when I get there:
