The cream of contemporary British printmaking is on show in this major new exhibition of Royal Society artists

About

In a thrilling large-scale group exhibition this summer, specialist printmaking gallery For Arts Sake showcases the best of contemporary British printmaking.

For the third year running, more than 80 pieces have been selected to transfer to the Ealing gallery from the 138th annual RE Original Print Exhibition at London’s Bankside Gallery, featuring works from members of the prestigious Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE).

One of the world’s premier arts organisations, the ‘RE’ (originally the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers) was founded by Sir Francis Seymour Haden in 1880, in reaction to the Royal Academy’s reluctance at the time to exhibit etchings and engravings. The name changed in 1991 to embrace the full breadth and scope of contemporary printmaking practices, but members of the historic institution retain the letters ‘RE’ after their name.

Its artists number the very best working in print today, from established names including Anita Klein, Mychael BarrattTrevor PriceGerry Baptist and Veta Gorner to a wealth of exciting new talent.

This exciting exhibition spans the full range of printmaking techniques, including etchinglinocutwood engravingscreenprint and more. It’s simply a must for fans and collectors of the art form everywhere.
