Midlands Print, in partnership with Leicester Print Workshop, will highlight and celebrate the art of printmaking in a variety of its historic and contemporary manifestations from 19th May until 23rd June 2012.
In an effort to reflect a representative cross-section of what's happening in the field of printmaking today, Tarpey Gallery has partnered with Leicester Print Workshop to showcase some of the finest printmakers in the Midlands. Featuring work by Serena Smith, Gemma Wright, Ross Loveday, Peter Clayton, Catherine Headley, Claire Morris Wright, Sat Kalsi, Luci Eldridge and Kate Da Casto, this will be Tarpey Gallery's first exhibition focusing entirely on the field of printmaking.
Leicester Print Workshop is the centre for fine art printmaking in the Midlands. From its Leicester base it offers specialist facilities and education opportunities ensuring printmaking continues to be practised and developed across all generations of artists. It seeks out partnerships with venues across the region to present and re-present printmaking to arts audiences and the Midlands Print collaboration with the Tarpey Gallery is one such coming together.
