Magdalen Road Studios, Oxford’s First Artist-Run Studios is a registered Charity that has served as a hub for creative practice, presenting a wide array of visual art to the diverse community of Oxford. It is with great pleasure that we announce our very first print exchange exhibition. This is open to artists working in and around Oxford, however, we will consider applications from printmakers from around the world (NB there may be an additional cost). This print exchange opportunity ‘Community’ is a means to consider and respond to our sense of community, what does it mean to us today, how have communities changed?
