MARCOLOOKS PRINT SWAP
Welcome to the home of the MarcoLooks Print Swap
In the past, I've taken part and been invited to many printmaking exchanges, but never for illustrators and artist who might work digitally or with pen/brush and ink ...well, no more! Let's exchange some of our prints and share our work amongst the community of incredible indie artists...
This is how it's going work:
ACCEPTED MEDIA: Art print. Any paper is fine*. There is no theme. Your name and social media handle should be on the back of each print, so your recipient will know where to find you.
PAPER: A5 (210 x 148 mm). Printed image size is up to you. You must provide identical prints. If you want to submit part of a limited edition, that's completely up to you.
THE SWAP: There are two options. You can choose between a portfolio of 5 or 10 randomly selected prints to be mailed to each participant at the end of Summer 2021 (exact dates TBA). MarcoLooks will keep 1 print from each participant submitted to the print swap for exhibition and promotional purposes. Participants will be notified when all print swaps have been shipped.
PARTICIPATION FEE: £6 to receive 5 prints, or £11 to receive 10 prints, to be paid here.
International: Prints and all participation fees must be received by WEDNESDAY 30th JUNE 2021
UK: Prints and all participation fees must be received by FRIDAY 16th JULY 2021
EXHIBITIONS: All submitted prints will be exhibited, in the autumn:
• SEPTEMBER: The Courthouse at Rural Arts, in Thirsk, Yorkshire.
• 20th - 26th OCTOBER: Drawsome X York Design Week, at Spark, York
Additional venues and exhibitions may be added along the way... watch this space!
REPRODUCTION: All participating prints will be put in a web gallery and may be reproduced digitally to promote additional exhibitions or future exchanges. Proper credit will be given to the artist upon reproduction; no monetary value will be associated with reproduction.
IMPORTANT: All prints must conform to the guidelines. Any prints that do not fit the guidelines will be returned to the artist. *£6 GBP Participation Fee is not refundable.
SHIPPING: Your complete edition of prints should be posted in a hard backed envelope. Prints should be mailed to the address (below), along with your order number and legible entry form (below). Prints will not be accepted without £6 or £11 payment.
International: Payment due no later than WEDNESDAY 30th JUNE 2021
UK: Payment due no later than FRIDAY 16th JULY 2021
SOCIAL MEDIA: As prints arrive, I’ll be uploading images to the MarcoLooks Instagram showcasing the variety of work and artists joining the print swap.
