Send Message: To this poster

This is an exchange outside of Barenforum...

Four Oceans Press is still having sign-ups for their fourth Hand-pulled Print Exchange.
We have 8 more spots to fill and this is our last push to get sign ups as there are only
53 more days until this exchange would be due... If you feel like you can complete a
set of prints in that time then I hope you will consider joining this Summer 2008 Print
Exchange... All the details are below :)


Color: B/W or Color. Color is encouraged, but we love a good b/w image.

Image Size: At least 6 x 8 but no larger than 8.5 x 11.

Paper Size: Paper must be no larger than 8.5 x 11. It is OK if the image bleeds
off the edge of the paper.

Medium: Woodblock, Linoleum, Serigraph, Lithograph or Intaglio

Paper type: Any archival paper appropriate to your printing method can be used.

Print Deadline: July 15, 2008

Complete exchange details can always be found on the Four Oceans Press website at

Check out the main Archive page to see who the 'Artist of the Month' is and to see
images of all the prints that have been in our previous exchanges (linked to the left).

The Fruit Alphabet Exchange is also having sign-ups... Prints are not due until
January 2009 - for those of you who need a lot of time :) There are only 11 more letter
available, so pick yours today!!!

A new type of exchange has been started on Four Oceans Press... It's not exactly what
the Baren is all about, however, as artists I'm sure there are some of you who also
might be really good photographers... Four Oceans Press is taking sign ups for their
first 'Fine Arts Photography Exchange' with the theme of "movement". If you are
a photographer or know someone who is, it would be wonderful if you would pass on
the information for this Exchange.

Take a Look, Read, Consider and then Sign up...

If you can not get involved this time, check the website regularly for the next
exchange and other projects. As always, Thank you to all the Artists on the Baren who
have been a part of the Four Oceans Press Exchanges or other Exchanges here on
Baren that I have been a part of :) You all do such great work!!!
I can't wait to see all the prints from exchange #36 :)

Thanks & Smiles,
