Print Journeys / Saturday 27th April - Saturday 25th May
The impact of journeying and journeys on the group of printmakers, brought together for this exhibition, is significant. All the artists have been part of the Bluecoat printmaking facilities for a number of years and have experimented and expanded the boundaries of printmaking. The work exhibited explores the potential of different print media from small inexpensive images in woodcut and large lino cuts, to a diverse range of screenprints and etchings.
Curated by local printmaker Gill Curry, exhibitors include Ann Beare, Gill Curry, Emma Gregory, Mike Hatjoullis, Grace Horne, Jeanne-Marie Kenny, Christine Toh, Lisa Who, Colette Whittington & Graham Williams.
