The Annual Print Exchange is an un-juried, open themed print exchange open to all members of Second State Press. The print exchange has been going strong for 9 years at Second State Press and is an opportunity for our members to exercise the idea of exchange at the core of our mission.

Important Dates:

  • Registration deadline: Friday, November 15, 2019

  • Print-A-Thon: Friday, December 6 - Saturday, December 7, from 12pm-12pm. For a flat rate of $25, printers get 24 hours of access to the studio, the screen printing ink graveyard, and lots of coffee and snacks.

  • Edition drop-off deadline: Saturday, December 7, 2019

  • Silent auction: Thursday, December 12, 2019

Eligibility: Any member of Second State Press is welcome to participate. If you are not a member, you may join for an $50 annual membership fee.

Edition Size: The size of the edition is 22 prints. The paper size must be 8×10 inches. Please remember to sign and number your prints.

Medium and Paper Size: Original work in any printed mediums (e.g. serigraphy, etching, lithography, intaglio, relief, etc.) Purely digital prints will not be accepted, but incorporating digital printing into your hand pulled prints is welcome. The paper size is 8×10 inches, prints may incorporate borders or be a bleed, but please only submit prints that fit the 8×10 inch requirement. Other sizes will NOT be eligible for the exchange. Please also include 22 sheets of glassine slightly smaller than 8×10 inches or you may request to purchase glassine from SSP.

Want to learn a new print process for your exchange edition? Check out our Stone Lithography class this November! Participants will make an edition of 22 8x10s.

Exhibition: Each artist will receive a random selection of 20 prints made by other SSP members and a lingering sense of satisfaction that comes from supporting SSP! The first print (1/22) will be on the walls at SSP for our Annual Silent Auction + Party. Please allow 4-6 weeks to receive your set of prints. When your exchange is ready to pick up you will receive an email. Optionally, we can mail it for a fee.

RSVP: Artists interested in participating should email SSP at memberprintexchange@secondstatepress.org.
