Celebrating The Chinese New Year
Year of the SNAKE 2013

PROOF Studio Gallery is again pleased to host the 12th International Print Exhibition and Exchange – an opportunity for printmakers from anywhere in the world to connect with each other by exhibiting their print interpretation of the zodiac sign of the SNAKE for the Chinese New Year 2013.  In previous years artists from Switzerland, Australia, India, Guatemala, China, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Scotland, Hong Kong, the United States and Canada have participated in this exhibition and print exchange.

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 dragon. As always, the Year of the Snake is both an exchange and a series of exhibitions. The first print is kept and used for the exhibition. 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.

For the exhibitions, the Year of the Snake is displayed at: PROOF Studio Gallery, OCADU (Ontario College of Art & Design University), Ottawa School of Art, and Muskoka Art Place Gallery. The show travels from February to the end of April. After the show comes home to PROOF your prints are exchanged and mailed out.
