Whatís a Trade?

Itís an edition of
prints, which are traded, framed by WPA and exhibited annually. Each year WPA
members choose a theme and define parameters of the trade portfolio. Members
exchange experiences of pulling an edition, as well as receive a collection of
prints. We plan to offer press
time at Craft for editions or connect printmakers with someone who has a press.
We can also try and pair the inexperienced with
the experienced for editioning. This is not a time to learn a new medium of
printmaking. Work in an area that you are comfortable. Remember that pulling an
edition requires time beyond the creation of imagery.


Theme: still undecidedÖsee above.
Paper: 1/4 sheet is 15" x 11" - any size image. Paper of reasonable weight (No Asian papers unless chine collé).
Format: No orientation restrictions this year.
Edition: 18. This includes 2 for WPA (for the archives & to be exhibited at membership show) &16 for the participants. First come, first pay, first serve if you are in good standing.
