UK Printmakers Community on Google+

ukprintmakerslogo

A little while after creating my profile on Google+ I started searching for communities to join to promote my artwork and noticed the lack of a UK based community for printmakers, so I decided to set one up. My hope is that printmakers based in the UK could use the community for discussing printmaking techniques, equipment, books, studios, favourite printmakers and exhibitions. I would also encourage printmakers to share pictures of their work, a link to their professional website, details about printmaking workshops, publications and any exhibitions they are involved in. It is still in the early stages but I hope to build up the community. If you are a printmaker based in the UK (or you know of one) using or interested in using Google+ it would be much appreciated if you would consider joining the community.

Angie Lewin & Carry Akroyd Exhibition

B05estJIMAIzNyv

From 3rd – 26th October printmakers Angie Lewin and Carry Akroyd had an exhibition of work at Cambridge Contemporary Art. I was fortunate to catch the exhibition before it closed, it consisted of large and small scale prints by both artists, the majority of which were inspired by nature. For me there were too many pieces that I liked to be able to list any highlights! Cambridge Contemporary Art is a gallery/shop which regularly stock original prints and artworks by printmakers.

During the weekend I also visited the Cambridge Original Printmakers exhibition. The exhibition includes over 40 local printmakers, both established and up and coming. The event also hosts guest speakers and printmaking demonstrations, for example I saw a demonstration of Chinese Woodblock Printing by St. Barnabas Press.

Highlights from the exhibition include, Andy English, Geri Waddington, Louise Stebbing, Kate Heiss, Nina Sage, John Douglas Piper, Tania Scott Durrant and many more!

The exhibition runs until the 5th October 2014, it’s a great opportunity to learn more about printmaking and even buy original prints!

La Grande Guerre: French Prints of The First World War

aaaa

On Saturday I visited The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to see two exhibitions, the first being La Grande Guerre: French Prints of The First World War. The exhibition consisted of colour lithographs and woodcuts detailling the first seven months of World War I.

Highlights include, Dans le Bois de Augustow…, Un soldat allemand en feu... and Notre artillerie lourde… by Eduardo Garcia Benito.

The exhibition has since closed but is available to view online here
