In My Backyard Print Exchange 2022

International Print Exchange 2022

Printmakers from around the world are invited to participate in the fifth year of our celebrated print exchange, exploring the theme “In My Backyard”.

Be as liberal as you like with your interpretation of this theme!


Paper size: 12cm square (4.7 inches square).

Images can be printed on any part of the paper or edge to edge.

Each artist is to create and submit a hardcopy edition of 10 prints to the Castlemaine Press, via post.

One of the ten prints will be kept by Castlemaine Press for exhibition and sale, the remaining nine prints will be randomly distributed to other exchange entrants. As a result all entrants will receive a random selection of nine print entries in return.

Prints will be exhibited and for sale at Castlemaine Press, Lot 19 on Saturday 15th October, 2022, to coincide with the Lot19 Spring Sculpture Prize & Exhibition launch.

Proceeds from print sales will support Castlemaine Press, with 10% of all sales donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

An online exhibition of the prints will be presented on the Castlemaine Press website, with all artists attributed.
