Join A/P online to celebrate printmakers from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and around the globe while treating yourself to original artworks and raising vital funds for A/P!
ALL ARE WELCOME to this ONLINE EVENT!
What is the Not So Mini Print Exchange and Fundraiser?
Each year Alberta Printmakers (A/P) hosts a print exchange and exhibition in conjunction with an exciting sale and silent auction fundraiser.
It’s our most anticipated event of the year that showcases the work of local and international printmakers, with all funds raised directly supporting A/P’s community programming.
Participants from around the globe submit an edition of ten original 8” x 10” prints to exchange with each other. Two impressions of each edition to are retained by A/P to sell and auction to lucky buyers/bidders at affordable rates.
This year, we see the shift to ONLINE fundraising as a great opportunity to reach a broader audience and connect them with incredible original prints to support a great cause.
*This year we have 30+ submissions from artists residing in Calgary; Lethbridge; Stony Plain; Ottawa, ON; Kingston, ON; Tappen, BC; Portland, OR; Baltimore, MD; Aichi, Japan; Auvers-sur-Oise, France; and Derby, UK.
