ESPACIO PRINTMAKERS MAKE AN IMPRESSION

Espacio Gallery printmakers and invited artists will once again be filling the gallery walls in
Shoreditch with an exciting and diverse array of original hand pulled prints.

The show, now in its fifth year, celebrates the art of the original print on paper and all the works are by experienced printmakers, some having recently shown at the Royal Academy Summer
Exhibition. Stephen Chambers RA, who curated the print rooms at this year’s Summer Exhibition spoke of “a lively community of dissimilarity, bound together by an overriding sense of excitement about the possibilities of printmaking.” And this ‘sense of excitement’ is reflected in the work by the Espacio printmakers who are passionate about the medium in which they work and are always
experimenting to produce new and innovative original art that is accessible and affordable.

Alongside the print fair there will be an education room containing a visual guide to the many
different printmaking methods and at least one of the exhibiting printmakers will always be present to answer questions. On Sunday 6th November there will ‘Print in Progress’, with printmaking demonstrations during the afternoon.

“We want to share with people our enthusiasm and love for this timeless discipline, which can
produce exciting contemporary art using traditional methods.” comments Zelda Eady, the show’s curator. “We hope that the public will engage with us and come and see that you don’t have to visit the Summer Exhibition to buy interesting works of art.”

Featured in the Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays late night art list, Espacio Gallery, in the heart of London’s East End art scene, was founded in 2012 by a group of artists working across all contemporary visual arts media who wanted a space of their own especially designed to meet their needs. The Original Print Fair is one of a stimulating programme of exhibitions, talks and events, which, as well as supporting, promoting and strengthening the community of artists is also
facilitating and building relationships between artists and audiences.
