"The Print Show"
2005-07-02 until 2005-07-24
Kettle's Yard Gallery, University of Cambridge
UK United Kingdom
For three weeks the gallery at Kettle's Yard will double up as a print
studio and exhibition space. Visitors will be able to explore a feast of
artists' prints, see how they are made, try their hand at printmaking, and
buy original works of art with interest free loans.
This exhibition of contemporary prints made at three master print studios
in and around Cambridge will highlight the strength and variety of
printmaking in this area. The Curwen Studio, the Print Studio and St
Barnabas Press will exhibit works by Basil Beattie, John Bellany, Peter
Blake, Prunella Clough, Alan Davie, Patrick Heron, John Maclean, Victor
Pasmore, Bryan Pearce, Eduardo Paolozzi, Paula Rego, alongside younger
artists such as Jane Dixon, David Rayson, Alison Wilding and many others.
For over 30 years Cambridge has been a centre of excellence and innovation
in printmaking, attracting artists from around the world. Each studio has
its own area of expertise - lithography at The Curwen Studio,
screenprinting at The Print Studio, while St Barnabas Press offers open
studio facilities to artists working locally. At the same time, these
three studios share an experimental approach that is also centred on the
collaboration between artist and printmaker; through this kind of exchange
of ideas and expertise, as this exhibition demonstrates, there are infinite
possible ways to make a print.
