The 20:20 print exchange was an experiment to see whether this type of format for a show would work. We were not really sure if it would work but thought it was worth a try – after all, nothing ventured and all that. The show closed on Saturday and with only a handful of prints left, it proved to have been a very successful experiment and one we will no doubt repeat in the future.
Everyone who came said how much they enjoyed it and how refreshing it was to find original art at affordable prices that they could take away with them. Most were also fascinated by the different types of print and the techniques used – we frequently found ourselves explaining the processes of how the prints were made.
Run as a fund-raising exercise for both ArtLab Contemporary Print Studio and Oxheys, it was a great success, raising some very welcome funds indeed. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who visited and who bought a print – many bought several and other just kept coming back and buying more!
Thank you all for your support for local artists!
