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.

Synchronicity VI by Michelle Griffiths

Ade Adesina’s work deals with how we humans affect the planet and combines his African roots with British culture.
