‘Chroma’ print exchange – exhibiting November 2 – 30, 2016
Submissions accepted via email until (send CV or website url): 20 June, 2016

After the success and great interest with the ‘Lettered’ print exchange, we’re keen to keep pushing the general concept of the print exchange so that the artist’s collaborative works not only suit a theme but form a secondary concept.

The ‘Chroma’ print exchange will be exhibited at QG&W (as was Lettered).

In QG&W’s first six months, we have begun realising our ambition to educate visitors with stimulating exhibitions. People enjoy learning about techniques and the stories that lie within the artist’s work – and we enjoy informing them.

Colour is ever present in our lives (as is the alphabet!) so we feel colour theory could do with a little more respect and some of your individual representation.

‘Chroma’ print exchange


Each selected artist will be given and assigned one single colour from the Charbonnel intaglio ink colour range. A total of 36 colours will be represented by 36 artists.

Artists can obviously translate their colour from a Charbonnel intaglio ink to one that suits their print medium (lino, screenprint etc) but the colour must be as close as possible to their assigned one. The full edition required is 39 prints of which three will be for sale – one print to be framed for exhibition and sale, one unframed print for sale and one print to form a full portfolio (to be owned by the gallery). The framed work will be returned to the artist if unsold. The remaining 36 prints will form the sets that go to each participating artist.
