Call for Entries 2021

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

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.
