Last year saw Artlab contemporary print studios join the 20:20 project for the first time.
20:20 Print Exchange started in 2009 as a project between Hot Bed Press in Salford and Red Hot Press in Southampton. The format was so successful that it was decided to roll this out to more print workshops. In 2010 there were 120 artists from 10 print workshops involved, in 2011 257 artists from 19 print studios and in 2012 392 artists from 31 workshops producing a total of 9,800 prints!
Artlab contemporary print studios were twinned with Seacourt print studio, Bangor, The Print shed, Hereford and Oxford Printmakers co-operative. This meant that we received a box set from each of our twinned studios as well as two random portfolios from the project.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see and buy any of the 115 original prints on show in this unique exhibition at Oxhey’s Mill Studios.
The exhibition previews on Weds 3rd July 6-8pm and continues until August 17th open 11-4 Fridays & Saturdays, other days, times by appointment please.
