For the second year running East London Printmakers is pleased to present its Annual Show at Embassy Tea Gallery.
The exhibition is open to all members and includes not just a range of styles, but experimental and accomplished work in most print mediums. Members are asked to contribute works made over the past year. It is a chance for fellow studio artists to see each other’s work in its finished state and for visitors to see the wide range of possibilities that printmaking allows. With a recently expanded studio and fantastic new equipment, the range of work this year is even more varied than previous shows.
Submitted works range from the imagined and intricate worlds of Jamie Temple and Belinda Chen, to the more fragmented and graphic cityscapes of Heather Fahy. Other works deal with more abstract forms, such as the colourful gestural drawings of Judith Symons or the linear works of Yann Brien. What these artists have in common is a passion for the possibilities afforded by print.
On Friday 25th September, Jairo Zaldua and Nicola Green will be holding screen printing workshops during the SLAM open event. Here you’ll have the chance to design, print and take away your own screen print.
The studio’s latest box set edition of prints, which is held in the print collection of the V&A Museum, will be on display at the exhibition.
With thanks to Rabbit in a Frame, Intaglio Printmaker, Printmakers Council & Westland Coffee and Wine.
Opening Reception: Tuesday, 15 September 6 - 9 pm. Exhibition to be opened by Anne Desmet, RA, RE
