What a Great Print Exhibition!

It was a great day out! On a really wet and windy day today, we visited the second annual Great Print Exhibition, at the Rheged Centre near Penrith, on its final day. I'm so glad we made the effort, as the space was fantastic, the work inspiring and the exhibition was busy. It runs from the end of November to the end of February, with sales before and after Christmas - and the response has been excellent, I'm told.

With work from many well-known printmakers, a good number of Cumbrian print artists and a wide spread from across the UK, it was great to see so much high quality work in one place, well presented and well lit, with unframed work also available in browsers.

Some photos below will give you a feel for the exhibition and some of my own personal favourites.

To see my own work, please check out my website: where you will also find an online Shop with currently available work. Thanks!

Longitude Gallery exhibition in Clitheroe

At the moment I have a number of pieces of work, framed and unframed linocuts, in an exhibition of printmaking running until March 30th in Clitheroe, Lancashire. Over 20 artists from Rossendale-based printmaking studio, Prospect Studios, are exhibiting work across a wide range of printmaking techniques.

On Saturday 4th March you can come along and meet many of the artists and enjoy the exhibition and some refreshments. Please join us if you can between 1pm and 4pm. Sadly, I'm not going to be able to be there - but please do come along and take a look. Alan Birch and the rest of the team will make you very welcome! For more info, see the gallery website
