The Curwen Studio was first set up in 1958, after its initial beginnings as part of the Curwen Press. This year the gallery celebrates 50 years of Curwen with an exhibition of lithographs made in the studio throughout this time. The exhibition includes prints made during a variety of periods at the Studio; from its early days producing work by Ceri Richards, Barbara Hepworth, John Piper, Elisabeth Frink, and Henry Moore, through to the present day, showing prints by artists who produce their work at the studio now.
This exhibition serves not only as a celebration of the 50 years gone by, but also as an acknowledgment of the studio’s constant progression in printmaking and its achievement of maintaining the high level of quality work produced under Curwen’s name.
the Curwen Studio began, Stanley Jones was chosen to run the studio as the
Master Printer and Director.
John Hoyland RA has produced a new lithograph, in a limited edition of 50, to commemorate Curwen’s 50th Anniversary. This print, along with new lithographs by Diana Armfield RA, will be launched at the exhibition.
