The Hallmark Room is hosting a wide selection of affordable prints during August. Thirty-six Print Workshops have taken part in this year’s 20:20 Print Exchange and The Ropewalk Print workshop has been twinned with Fife Dunfermline Print workshop.
Ropewalk Printmakers Keith Charlton, Janet Cox, Tim Needham, Jane Parker, Veronica Pettifer, Jan Stead, Sue Stephenson, Nic Stoker and Gordon Williams and have all produced print editions measuring 20cm x 20cm for the project.
The display also includes a selection of prints from the 415 artists that have taken part both nationally and internationally, including prints from Moscow and Hong Kong and the United States.
The Print Exchange started in 2009 with 10 artists from Salford exchanging prints with counterparts in Southampton. Since then, more than 133,000 prints have been created especially and exchanged. For more information on the 20:20 Print Exchange go to www.2020printexchange.com
