The age old skill of printmaking is going on display in York this July, with a selection of the city’s finest printmakers showcasing their work - taking you on a journey from concept to completion.
Chrissie Dell, Emma Whitelock, Michelle Hughes, Ann Decker, Janice Simpson, Katherine Rathmell, Milena Dragic, Derek Gauld, Shaun Wyatt, Patricia Ann Ruddle are the selected few.
In 2015, a dozen or so printmakers from the York area got together and formed the York Printmakers. The group has now explanded greatly and meet monthly to share their work and ideas. Members boast a wide variety of methods including etching, linocut, collagraph, monotype, screen print, solar plate, Japanese woodblock and lithography. Our members have a wide range of printmaking backgrounds, from art students to professional artists who exhibit widely.
They are set to showcase the group’s array of skills with techniques and printing presses which date back hundreds of years through to those that push the boundaries of contemporary practice with laser cut plates, digital elements and 3D techniques.
It is an exciting time for Printmaking and the group are keen to show people the endless possibilities, as well as some of the plates from which their prints are made.
York Printmakers on display at York City Screen, 13 – 17 Coney St, YO1 9QL from 1–21 July 2017 during cinema hours.
