New Jersey Printmaking Council Autumn Trade Print

Call for Entries!

Thanks to Shelley Thorstensen, the PCNJ is now on BYO's radar. Linda Helm Krapf, their executive director, generously gifted an oversize light table to BYO a few weeks, and then promptly visited us during our September Open House!

Since my co-founder is a New Jersey resident, it's only natural that we make an effort to participate!

If you want to participate, but do not have access to a shop to do so; you can rent time at BYO!

If you would like to participate in the exchange (and who doesn't love a good print trade...), email us at byostudio.philly@gmail.com for the entry form.

Here's the skinny:

The Printmaking Center of New Jersey invites you to participate in our first autumn Print Exchange, to benefit the studio of PCNJ.
