Print Information & Submission Guidelines
Each artist creates a limited edition print using a traditional print technique such as etching, wood block, linoblock, embossing, lithographs, relief, silkscreen or mixed print media inspired in some way by the HORSE. As always, the Year of the Snakeis both an exchange and a series of exhibitions. The first print is kept and used for the travelling exhibitions. The other prints are offered for sale or used for the exchange. For the exchange, you receive back other artists’ work and other artists get your prints.
