Print Swap at the Knaak + Juarez Studio

Today we had our first Print Swap at the Knaak + Juarez Studio.

As artists we collect the works of other artists either by buying, trading, or acquiring. So the idea was why not start a photo collection with the artists that are in the community. Yet, still have a collection that is unique. 

It was neat to hear each photographer’s intent behind the photos that they brought in. Such diversity amongst local photographers living and working in Sheboygan and Kohler. 

Another one will be planned for the Spring. If you are interested in participating simply contact Frank Juarez below.
