Introducing Vox Populi Print Collective, a printmaking guild co-founded by Barry Roal Carlsen and Peter Hopkins.
Vox Populi seeks to elevate, celebrate, and promote fine art printmaking in the US and abroad. Participating guild members will create, curate, and fund exhibitions exclusively for it’s members.
Vox Populi is not restricted to printmakers—but only prints will be exhibited. All traditional and digital printmaking techniques are welcome, however prints produced exclusively by the use of ink jet or laser printers are not allowed. All prints must be original and not reproductions of pre-existing artwork by the artist.
Vox Populi has joined SHIM because of the connectivity that SHIM provides. Through SHIM, we can establish gallery shows and pop-up events at most major cities worldwide. We can participate in art fairs. And, we get a digital profile on Artsy.net and Widewalls.ch, two of the largest internet sites where millions of collectors and art lovers come to find innovative art.
