Hot off the press
The Atkinson Gallery re-opens with an exhibition of work by members of the prestigious Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers
The Royal Society of Painter-Printers, founded back in 1880, promotes original printmaking in its many and varied forms, including monoprint, relief printing, intaglio, screen print, lithography, digital print and more (though I don’t think potato prints are on the list). This new exhibition of works by its members is on at the Atkinson Gallery, at Millfield in Street, until Thurs 7 October. Here’s a taster….
Recognise this London landmark? Paul Catherall is one of the country’s leading linocut printmakers, well-known for his bold architectural images of the city – like this print depicting the National Theatre – and one of London Transport’s most prolific poster artists.
Pilar Munoz del Castillo’s work often deals with the concept of time and how it affects the individual (in my case, it hates me).
Michelle Griffiths uses subconscious or automatic drawing to create some of her images.
Ade Adesina’s work deals with how we humans affect the planet and combines his African roots with British culture.
The exhibition is on at the Atkinson Gallery at Millfield School in Street until Thurs 7 Oct, from Monday to Thursday, 9.30am – 5pm. There’s free parking opposite the school on Butleigh Road. Sign at the Gatehouse when you arrive and they’ll direct you to the gallery. Free entry.
