About the Event
“You Live, You Learn” Print Exchange
Anchored Compass studio is delighted to announce our “You Live, You Learn” themed print exchange for 2021. We welcome artists and printmakers at any skill level, in the US and internationally to participate.
Theme: The theme for this print exchange is "You Live, You Learn" - Think Alanis Morissette vibes and all of the things you have learned and experienced during 2020 and now 2021.
FUNDRAISER: This print exchange will serve as a fundraiser to support Wunderbar in Syracuse NY. As we know, many businesses have been impacted by the COVID- 19 Pandemic and Anchored Compass would like to give back to our local community. To learn more about Wunderbar, visit: https://www.wunderbarsyr.com/.
15$ of each registration will be donated to Wunderbar and the remainder of each registration will be used for print exchange shipping costs.
How it works
Each participating artist sends us an edition of twelve original prints. We send each artist ten original prints by other artists, randomly selected by us. We retain two prints from every edition we receive, one of which will remain in an archival collection. We may use some of the images online to promote the print exchange, gallery show and future print exchanges.
All forms of editionable prints are acceptable, including etching/aquatint, lithography, woodcut, linocut, mezzotint, and screen-print. To prevent damage to other entries, please do not submit with glitter.
Paper size must be 8”x10” (203mm x 254mm). Over or under sized submissions will not be accepted. Your print image does not need to fill the paper.
The complete edition must be twelve prints, each one signed and numbered (1/12 – 12/12). You may retain artist proofs (marked A/P only). Titles are optional. Because of size restrictions, you may sign and number your prints on the back instead of the front. Please also print your name clearly on the back of each print.
We are excited to announce that Wunderbar in Syracuse NY will host the “You Live, You Learn” Print Exchange Gallery Show.
Exhibit timeframe: June 11, 2021 – June 19, 2021
Gallery Reception: June 11, 2021 (Details to follow)

You must register and pay online before shipping your prints to us. The information we collect from you will be for the sole purpose of the “You Live, You Learn” print exchange, and for mailing the print series to you. Once you register, we will email you reminders about how and when to submit your edition.
Your submission must be packaged in a single shipment. There must be a slip-sheet between each print. If shipping internationally, please mark your package clearly as “Printed Material: No commercial value,” to avoid expensive customs duty.
