Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers Annual Exhibition 2012

From the long established processes of etching and relief printing,

to the more contemporary uses of digital and photographic

technology, the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers Annual

Exhibition is a marvellous opportunity to see a wide variety of highly

skilled original prints.

Held at Bankside Gallery from 11th May 9th June 2012, and

open 11am 6pm daily, it couldn’t be easier to visit. Set in the

vibrant cultural quarter of Bankside, next to Tate Modern, and now

only two minutes from the newly opened Blackfriars south station,

Bankside Gallery is a key venue for art in the local area. Admission

is free to all exhibitions, and both framed and unframed prints are

available to purchase.

Founded in 1880, the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers [RE]

remains the longest established elected body of professional artists

who make prints. Formerly know as the Royal Society of Painter-

Etchers, they have had their home at Bankside Gallery since 1980.

Why not come and ‘Meet the Artists’? Visit the ‘Talks and Events’

page of for further information on which

artists will be available to discuss different printmaking techniques

during the exhibition.
