Year of the GOAT Print Exhibition & Exchange 2015

14th International Print Exhibition and Exchange
at PROOF Studio Gallery
Celebrating The Chinese Year of the GOAT 2015

PROOF Studio Gallery is again pleased to host the 14th  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 GOAT for the Chinese New Year 2015.  In previous years artists from Switzerland, Australia, India, Guatemala, China, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Scotland, Hong Kong, France, 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 GOAT, SHEEP, LAMB, or RAM. As always, the Year of the Goat is both an exchange and a series of exhibitions. The first print is kept and used for the travelling exhibitions. 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.

The show travels from February to the end of May.  After the show comes home to PROOF your prints are exchanged and mailed out over the summer.
