As with all Baren exchanges there are two constants. All prints must be hand-pulled relief prints and of a designated paper size.
This particular exchange was an unusually small size (5”x7” or 12.5 cm x 17.5cm) which brought forth marvelous jewel-like creations.
There was no designated theme for this exchange thus, just as the members of Baren are varied, so are these prints, reflecting
different techniques and thoughts, spanning across oceans, uniting us in our love of the creation of a relief print.
As many of us have found, an exchange makes us all better printmakers. For some it is the experience of making a large edition
for the first time. For others it is the challenge of a new technique. No matter where we are in our learning, the visual and tactile
experience of these wonderful prints is a great lesson in humility and an overwhelming desire to master our medium.
After years of being involved with Baren, it was truly a joy to work with all of you assembling this wonderful collection. Thank
