ARCHIVE – The Great Print Exhibition 2016

ARCHIVE – The Great Print Exhibition 2016

FRIDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2016 – SUNDAY 26 FEBRUARY 2017 // This major exhibition of printmaking in all its forms, returns in a new time slot over Christmas. Created by Rheged, this exhibition is the largest of its kind in the North of England and features over 600 artworks by more than 65 British artists. As part of the exhibition, Cumbria printmakers will run workshops and demonstrations.

We have built a pop up studio in the gallery called the Making Space. Here printmakers are creating artworks in the gallery using their own tools plus an original Albion Press. You can speak to the artists about their printmaking, and buy artworks directly from them!

Artists currently booked in are as follows:

Jamie Barnes – Tuesday 20 to Thursday 22 December

Julian Milner – Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 December

Dorothy Ramsay – Monday 2 – Thursday 5 January

Ray Ogden – Friday 20 – Sunday 22 January

Debby Akam – Friday 30 January, Sunday 1, Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 February

The making space is FREE for all printmakers to use. If you would like to have your own session in the making space, please email and include a couple of images of your work.
