Lasting Impressions: Contemporary Printmaking

A belated thank you to An Talla Solais in Ullapool for celebrating the art of printmaking, by showcasing work produced by artists from two institutions: the Highland Print Studio, in Inverness, and Hot Bed Press, in Salford, Greater Manchester.

The exhibition which ran during March and April this year was a great success and hailed as "eclectic and enthralling" by Mandy Haggith, who writes for Northings on the web, covering Arts and Culture in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. The review link is here for the Lasting Impressions exhibition.

Thank you for the mention of many of the linoprints I had in the exhibition, especially ones with a Scottish connection, like Morlich and the Scottish Sheep. I'm delighted that the Scottish Sheep has found a permanent home in the area!

Didsbury Arts Festival 2013

Didsbury Arts Festival in Manchester is coming up soon - having moved to earlier in the year. It starts on Saturday 22 June and runs until Sunday 30 June. I took part last year and really enjoyed it. If you are in the area it is well worth getting involved or going along to.

Unfortunately I'll be away on holiday for some of the Festival this year, so will just have to enjoy the bits I'm here for and take part in 2014.

Here's a link to all the details: Didsbury Arts Festival 2013.
