ABOUT SHOP SWAP: Shop Swap is a 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 2024: The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is collaborating with Litho Werkstatt Berlin to exhibit our members’ work internationally! CCP and the Litho Werkstatt will be sending each other a representative body of work illustrating the talents of each other’s membership.
WERKSTATT KÜNSTLERISCHE LITHOGRAPHIE, or the Artistic Lithography Workshop was founded in Berlin in 1987. In the nearly four decades of its existence, it has earned respect as a printmaking workplace, even beyond the borders of Germany. More than 200 artists from around the world have worked in the workshop, which cultivates the classic printing techniques of stone lithography, etching and woodcut. Much like CCP, they offer studio space for artists, the expert advice of printers, instructional courses, editioning services, and a gallery space.
