Cutting a Fine Line: The Art of Printmaking by Cowprint

In cel­e­bra­tion of their 10th Anniver­sary, Cow­print invites you to explore the excit­ing diver­si­ty of mod­ern print through the work of twen­ty artists

In celebration of their 10th Anniversary, Cowprint invites you to explore the exciting diversity of modern printmaking through the varied work of twenty local artists.

All the work on display has been printed by hand, with our artists taking advantage of the rich variety of different printmaking techniques to express their ideas, some of which will be demonstrated during the exhibition. Within this exhibition you will find examples of relief methods, such as woodcut, wood engraving and linocut, intaglio methods such as etching, mezzotint, solar plate and collagraph and finally planographic methods such as monoprint and screenprint.

Cowprint members and exhibiting artists: Ashley Ailes, Sian Appleyard, Linda Bennett, Kay Brown, Amanda Burnie, Jo Cheer, Margot Eardley, Celia Ford, Barbara Hamilton, Zoe Hemsley, Eleanor Horne, Sue Howard, Tori McLean, Gillian Owen, Jo Price, Irene Smith, Mandy Smith, Angie Versey and Carole Westbrooke. There will also be a special tribute to long term Cowprint member and exhibitor Sheila Lockyer, who tragically passed away unexpectedly in December 2021.

‘Cutting a Fine Line: The Art of Printmaking’ is on display from Friday 29th April to Sunday 8th May and entry is free. Dates and times for live demonstrations TBC
