Los Angeles artist Camilla Taylor devised an intriguing exhibition idea for new collectors. Twenty-five printmakers make an edition of 51 prints similar in theme and size and all priced at $50. The first 25 in the edition are offered to the public for purchase, the second half would be exchanged between the participating artists as a portfolio, and the final print remains with the gallery.

Taylor’s ninth print exchange, and the first in Southern California, opens at Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow on Friday, Nov. 1 from 6 to 9 p.m., 1175 S. Coast Highway and runs through Nov. 10.
