2020 Human Emotion Print Exchange details

QG&W print exchanges are becoming very popular and QG&W are ecstatic about that.

The print exchange exhibition is a highlight event during the Queenscliffe Literary Festival – and just as much anticipated by the literary world as it is by the art world.

The print exchange theme for 2020 will focus on various human emotion. The literature titles have been compiled by Lisa and Mathew from The Bookshop at Queenscliff who will also source each book title that will be posted to each artist participating in the print exchange.

The full list of emotions and corresponding literature titles are posted below.


We welcome your submission application for the next print exchange. Details will be released at the end of May via our mailing list and through our social media networks. Submission applications do not guarantee participation.
