Snow” A/P 1956 by Robert Tavener
A Celebration of
British Printmaking is an exhibition, which brings
together a wide variety of renowned printmakers’ work from 1950
to present day. The skill and craft of British printmaking can be
seen at its best with original prints including linocuts,
lithographs, screen prints, wood engravings and etchings.
The printmakers represented are all
from a generation of British printmakers committed to the art of
printmaking. Many were lecturers in the printmaking departments of
Art Schools around the country, working over the last 50 years. They
include Robert Tavener at Eastbourne and St Martins, Geoffrey
Elliott at Brighton, Richard Vicary at Epsom and
Shrewsbury, Richard Beer at Chelsea, Garrick Palmer
at Winchester, Edwin La Dell at the Royal College.
The exhibition is organised by Emma
Mason British Prints who specialise in original prints by British
Printmakers. There is a particular emphasis in raising awareness of
superb printmakers whose work is often overlooked. Many of the prints
have come directly from the studios of the printmakers, and are what
remain of the portfolio of work by the printmaker.
All work is for sale. There will be
framed and unframed work available.
The Thebes Gallery is situated just
of the main high street in Lewes, with many shops and restaurants
nearby. Lewes is easily accessible by train from London and Brighton
and the gallery is a 5 minute walk from the station. Lewes itself is
a beautiful town set in the heart of the South Downs.
