An exhibition to highlight the best in Modern British and Contemporary Printmaking.

About

This October we take a look at Original Prints and some of the most innovative and creative artists who made them.

Original prints are not reproductions, they are original works of art, conceived and created by an artist who is deliberately using his chosen medium to create an effect which could not be achieved any other way. As such they have a vitality and clarity which reproductions (giclee or otherwise) rarely achieve. Some Original Prints are published with or alongside an "Artist Book", we have a selection on hand to view at the gallery on request.

The main processes are etching, lithography, woodcut and screenprinting.

The artist will work directly onto the plate, stone, wood or screen achieving effects that are unique to that process. Once the plate has been used to produce the edition (plus proofs etc), it is destroyed. The prints are then sigend by the artist and numbered.

For more on this subject, see our article on "What is an Original Print?"
