The Ambos Lados print exchange was conceived upon the success of the Horned Toad II print exchange, mentioned at the beginning of this blog post (which included printmakers from Oaxaca).




The "Ambos Lados International Print Exchange" was announced at the Taller La Catrina in Monterrey, Mexico, during the opening of the Horned Toad Print Exchange II.
