I had SO much fun with the original Open Press Project Print Exchange that when they opened it up for round 2, I immediately jumped on board. The idea is you send in ten prints made with an Open Press Project mini printing press – one stays with the project and gets sent out on exhibitions, and you receive nine random prints in return.
Inspired by this past year’s holiday card, I did another drypoint etching on a plastic plate. Go with what you know, right? The deadline to be received in Germany was February 1, so I had them out mid January which was a bit of a list minute rush after a busy holiday season, and partly why I went a little easier on myself with this one instead of trying something new. Still, I’m REALLY happy with how it came out and can’t wait to see the nine prints I receive in return! To see all the prints from both exchanges, check out their openprintexchange.com website.
