In addition to this blog, there are various ways to interact with Barenforum.org members and our many many friends!




Exchange #71

This exchange will be closing shortly and is fully loaded with eager printmakers willing to share prints. The theme is open and that always makes an interesting collection showcasing a variety of styles and subjects.

As of this day, 63,900 prints have flown all over the world in the name of sharing woodblock art since Barenforum's founding. That's 30 participants, 30 prints each, 70 exchanges if anyone wants to check my math. Each of the long-time participants owns an astounding collection of nearly 2100 prints from all over the world.
