Print Exchange [Submissions Due]


Theme: Disguise

Mantle will be accepting prints for a portfolio exchange. The complete portfolio will be exhibited at the gallery in San Antonio, TX in September 2018

What is a Print Exchange?

Artists commit to creating an identical (or as close to identical as possible) edition of their design and submit to the organizing group (Mantle Art Space). They will receive a full portfolio containing a print from each of the participating artists. For example: An artist creates 21 numbered prints and receives everyone else's number #4 from the other editions.

Basically; Submit a print, get 20 different prints back.



  • Artists of all levels and print media accepted. We are looking for contemporary work with any interpretation on the theme. 

  • The print edition is 21 - If more than 20 artists are accepted, portfolios will still include 20 (randomized) prints. One complete set will be kept as part of the collection at Mantle Art Space following the exhibition. 

  • Final paper size is 11" x 14"

  • The entry fee is $40 - this includes a portfolio mailed back to the artist at the completion of the show. The fee is due upon acceptance and may be paid online.

  • Artists should apply with example prints and/or digital portfolio links. Artists may include a concept for a print, but this is not required. 


Please submit applications via email ( Accepted submissions will be notified on July 20th and then invoiced for payment.
