Details

Following a successful month at Delamore Arts, Artizan Collective are pleased to be bringing their Contemporary British Printmakers Exhibition to their gallery on Lucius Street, as they prepare to make an announcement about future activity and plans for the venue.

From woodcut to etching, lithography to mezzotint, monotyping to mokulito, the variety and diversity of printmaking techniques makes it a near endlessly explorable art form, and one that has defined trends and tastes for centuries. As a practice and craft, it owes much of this evolution to the dialogue that grew between those that pursued its practical use as a tool for reproducing text and image, and the artists that sought to exploit the opportunities this bore for their own creative expression.

Today, the spidering and innumerable tributaries that the practice has taken, lend their successes both to the worlds of modern publishing and printing and to one of the most exciting art markets of the 21st century.

Contemporary British Printmakers 2024 is the inaugural exhibition curated by Artizan Collective on behalf of Delamore Arts. It brings together 30 printmakers from across the UK, showcasing 80 original works and exploring 11 techniques that span over a thousand years of the artform.

The exhibition will launch on Saturday 15th June
