Press Gang Printmakers are showing their annual summer exhibition of printmaking at Harbour House. The artists, whose workshop is based in Salcombe, will show a varied body of original prints exploring the theme The Lie of The Land. The exhibition opens at the Kingsbridge art gallery on Tuesday, June 22.
Twelve artists are involved in the show, which features a wide range of traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques, including lino and wood cut, drypoint, etching and collagraph, and monoprint and monotype. Other more experimental works explore collage and textile embellishments.
For the last 12 years Mike Glanville has run a printmaking workshop at Salcombe Art Club, and the artists involved form a lively group, sharing ideas and techniques in the mutually supportive and creative environment of the Loft Studio.
Members of Press Gang will be in the gallery throughout the fortnight, and will be happy to explain how different kinds of printing plates are made, and how ink is transferred from plate to paper, creating each time an original work of art.
The Lie of the Land showcases the work of Press Gang Printmakers, and opens at Harbour House in Kingsbridge on Tuesday 22 June 22. Opening times will be 10am-5pm daily, until the close of the show on Sunday, July 4. Admission is free.
