Small Print International

I recently submitted three prints to the Leicester Print Workshop's Small Print International Exhibition and was fortunate enough to have all three selected.  The prints had to be no larger than 100 square cm, an interesting size to work to.  They also had to be an edition of at least 6 prints, thesse I di as an edition of 8.  They can also be brought online via Leicester Print Workshop. The exhibition will be touring to six different locations around the country during the next year.  A great opportunity to see a range of exciting prints.

Printmakers Council at Fifty

Last year the Printmakers Council celebrated its 50th Anniversary.  I have been a member for the last five years and have been able to participate in a number of exhibitions organised by the group.  Last year to celebrate the anniversary the Council organised a number of events to mark the occasion.

These included the publication of a book, ‘Making an Impression’, an Exhibition at the Bankside Gallery and a mini-print portfolio.  I had a print accepted for the mini-print portfolio (shown below) this was exhibited at the main exhibition and then 2 copies of the edition of 5 were included in presentation portfolios that are now held in the collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. The prints all had to be within a 19 by 14 cm image size.

The organising committee worked really hard to activities which helped demonstrate the vibrancy and variety in contemporary printmaking in the UK.
