ESPACIO PRINTMAKERS MAKE AN IMPRESSION
Espacio Gallery printmakers and invited artists will once again be filling the gallery walls in Shoreditch with an exciting and diverse array of original hand pulled prints.The show, now in its fifth year, celebrates the art of the original print on paper and all the works are by experienced printmakers, some having recently shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. There is a sense of excitement, which is reflected in the work by the Espacio printmakers who are passionate about the medium in which they work and are always experimenting to produce new and innovative original art that is accessible and affordable.Alongside the print fair there will be an education room containing a visual guide to the many different printmaking methods and at least one of the exhibiting printmakers will always be present to answer questions. On Sunday 6th November there will ‘Print in Progress’, with printmaking demonstrations during the afternoon.“We want to share with people our enthusiasm and love for this timeless discipline, which can produce exciting contemporary art using traditional methods.” comments Zelda Eady, the show’s curator.
