Take part in 20:20 Print Exchange 2014

20-20PrintExchange2014

Dear lps Studio Members,

I am writing to you about this year’s 20:20 print exchange hosted by Hot Bed Press. We are really hoping that londonprintstudio would be able to take part this year, as it would be a great incentive for our members to make new work and be part of the bigger printmaking network in the UK.

The deadline to let Hot Bed Press know if we would like to take part is Friday 1st August. We know it is short notice but if you are interested please let us know as soon as possible. A participation fee of £10.00 has to be deposited in cash with Kath at the studio as confirmation.

Some details of the 20:20 print exchange are:
•    londonprintstudio will gather 10, 20 or 30 artists/members together to each produce an edition of 25 prints.
•    Every artist is asked to produce a new edition of 25 prints on paper size 20cm x 20cm. Each artist pays £10.00.
•    In return each artist receives a box set of 20 randomly selected prints, (including their own print and 19 others).
•    Prints could be any print medium and numbered 1 to 25 of 25 prints.
•    Each workshop also receives one set of randomly selected prints and one ‘twinned’ set whereby workshops are randomly matched to another print workshop, each receiving a set of 10 of their own members’ prints and one set of your ‘twinning partner workshop’.
•    One print from every participant is kept by Hot Bed Press to exhibit/tour nationally.
•    The exchange itself takes place in November.

In 2014 the prints have so far toured from West Yorkshire Print Workshop, Gloucestershire Print Co-op, The Art House; Wakefield, The Print Shed; Hereford, and next up Hope House Prints in Leeds and finally The Bluecoat in Liverpool.

There is plenty of time for everyone to get printing and to get involved. We therefore request that members interested in taking part in this year’s 20:20 print exchange to send in their names along with participation fee of £10.00 to Kath by Thursday, 31st July 2014 so that we may go ahead and intimate Hot Bed Press accordingly. Please also remember that lps requires your prints to be submitted by end September.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me on asmaahashmi@hotmail.com.

Kind regards,
Asma Hashmi
