Printmaking is a revolutionary, democratic art form with a long history and valued for its technical qualities. A print exchange allows a collaboration of creativity and honors printmaking’s roots in communication and accessibility. Taos Center for the Arts’ first Print Exchange is open to all artists working within the medium of print. Participants will create an edition using any form of printmaking. Each participant will receive an exchange portfolio of all other participants’ prints! TCA will retain 2 works from each edition for sale at the exhibition.

Artists’ works from this exchange will be exhibited in-person at the Encore Gallery from Sept 25, 2021 through January 5, 2022, and they will be available for viewing on the TCA website.
