About the Not So Mini Print Exchange and Fundraiser

Each year Alberta Printmakers (A/P) hosts a print exchange, exhibition and sale to showcase the work of local and international printmakers, and to raise vital funds toward A/P’s operations and programming. All participants in this exchange will submit an edition of ten (10) 8” x 10” prints.

To raise funds:

  • A/P retains 2 copies of each edition to sell and auction
  • All funds raised directly support A/P operations and programs that serve the local Calgary community and beyond
  • This year, we see the shift to online fundraising as a great opportunity to reach a broader audience and connect them with incredible original prints to support a great cause 

In return each participant will:

  • Receive 8 original prints from other participants, selected at random
  • Have their submitted artwork promoted on the A/P website and social media platforms
  • Be included in the international group exhibition in the A/P Main Space Gallery from December 4 - 19, 2020
  • Have their work available for international sale and auction, allowing the opportunity to be included in private collection(s).

  • This includes print-artists of ALL experience levels, from very beginner to expert (that means you - we want to see your awesome prints!)
