Shop Swap is an annual print exchange exhibition designed to increase visibility for CCP member artists and artists at other community print shops. CCP members were invited to submit original fine art prints to be reviewed by an outside juror who selected a representative body of work from among the submissions. As “shop swap” suggests, these prints will be sent to that year’s collaborating studio for exhibition, CCP and the East London Printmakers will be sending each other a representative body of work illustrating the talents of each other’s membership.The Shop Swap: East London Printmakers at CCP exhibition will be on view in our Lithography Room Gallery concurrently alongside our 8th Biennial FOOTPRINT International Exhibition, opening Sunday, June 5, 2022.
