This show invites artists from around the world to submit prints no larger than 4”x 4”.

Our recent Mini Print shows have attracted artists from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand as well as many artists from the United States.
The Exhibition has been held bi-annually since 1985 and was founded and directed by Bev McLean who sought to challenge artists and provide an affordable form in which international art could be brought together. The exhibitions have toured throughout the US and abroad. The Ink Shop was a host of the 16th, 17th, 18th exhibits and is now organizing the 19th and following exhibits.
