ABOUT SHOP SWAP: 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 are invited to submit original fine art prints to be reviewed by an outside juror who will select a representative body of work from the submissions. As “shop swap” suggests, these prints will be sent to that year’s collaborating studio for exhibition, while a group of prints from their organization’s artists will be sent to CCP to be displayed in our Lithography Room Gallery.
SHOP SWAP PARTNER 2022: The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is collaborating with East London Printmakers to exhibit our members’ work internationally! CCP and the East London Printmakers will be sending each other a representative body of work illustrating the talents of each other’s membership.
