Following the success of the PCA Print Exchanges in 2016, 2018, and 2020, we are pleased to invite our printmaker members to participate once again in our third biennial Print Exchange and celebrate the depth and diversity of contemporary Australian Printmaking.
This is a PCA member only opportunity to create a new edition of prints to be swapped with other members. Your print will be accepted into the PCA Archive as a snapshot of contemporary printmaking in 2022, and included in an online exhibition and sale showcasing your work to the PCA audience of approximately 14,000.
Please note you must be a member of the Print Council of Australia to participate in the project. There are many benefits to being a member including a subscription to the quarterly Imprint magazine. To view membership options visit our membership page.
