20/20 Print Exchange

The 20/20 Print Exchange, run by Hot Bed Press, has produced the usual array of stunning responses to the 20 x 20 format and these can all be found on this Flickr site. 

In all 19 print workshops took part including
Birmingham Printmakers and each individual artist in return received a nicely boxed set of 19 prints randomly selected from the 236 participating artist + their own submission.

Additionally, each workshop was randomly twinned with one of the other 19, which in our case was
 Double Elephant so we have a set of prints from their artists and vice versa.

Fellow printmaker Jo Ruth has a joint exhibition with Sue Halstead which opens this week at Pershore Community Arts Centre , where as Jo says, ‘It’s a good place to pop in for a cuppa (or a pint!)’
