  • Opening Reception - Thursday, April 4th, 4-7 PM, in the gallery

Since 2005, students and faculty of the Rhode Island College Printmaking Department have taken part in a print exchange, in which each artist creates an edition of prints to trade with the other artists involved. Unthemed and with only a set paper size as a guide, exchange participants create innovative and unique prints that add to or start their classmates’ own art collections. Curated by RIC Alumnus Sam Nehila '19, this exhibition digs into the past and traces common trends in subject matter as well as the range of technical experimentation of RIC printmakers throughout the years.
