2017 Year of the Rooster - print exchange by mail

This is the Year of the Rooster, specifically, a Fire Rooster year. 

people, wake up. (2017)  Katie Argyle - linocut on canson card, edition of 45.
 For several years I participated in a Chinese New Year print exchange through 
Proof Gallery in Toronto. After many years, they cancelled their event.

Theresa Martin, Kansas City, USA - the print was mailed as a postcard
 I looked for another exchange and found a Year of the Rooster exchange through the mail. 

Stephanie Chao, Laguna Niguel, California, USA
This was on Baren Forum which is a great printmaking resource aimed 
toward woodblock printmakers but definitely open to other fine art printmakers. 
Take a look at their site! Wow.

Frank Trueba, Felton California, USA - super interesting information printed on the back

I signed on to exchange new year greetings. 
There are 30 of us and we made and edition of prints/cards for each other.

copper etching over linoblock with chine colle - not sure who the artist is...?
On the list are a few Canadians, one from the UK, one from Italy and 
one from Tasmania. The rest are located in the United States of America. 

Sonia Jensen - clever two sided rooster card

So far I have received 7 of 29. 

Monica Bright, Star, Idaho, USA

Many more to look forward to.
