The Derby Print Open is an exhibition open to all showcasing contemporary printmaking from artists based in the United Kingdom. 


The Derby Print Open was created in 2018, by Green Door Printmaking Studio, with a simple ideology; to promote printmaking and printmakers around the UK.

Over time, the DPO has developed, showcasing artists from all over the UK, partnering with local businesses to add to the cultural impact of the arts within Derbyshire.


Who we are

Green Door Printmaking Studio is Derbyshire’s only open access artist studio dedicated to the art and craft of innovative and environmentally sound printmaking. We strive to raise the profile of printmaking as a primary art form with a long and distinguished history. We also host and organise the International Print Exchange.

How it works

Applications are open to all and there is no assigned theme. Printmakers are invited to complete a submission form for up to three prints, and (subject to available space) each entrant will be guaranteed to exhibit at least one of the submitted works provided all other guidelines are adhered to.

The exhibition takes place throughout June.
