Go Crack A Art

2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)

2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)

I went to see the Worldwide Original Print Exhibition 2022 at the Bankside Gallery on the South Lender on Tuesday. It finishes on Sunday 2nd October.

I can definitely remarkably advise it as a numerous collection of initial great artwork prints which show the variety in distinct methods to print-making

The prints also assorted amongst the incredibly vibrant and monochrome.

All the works exhibited are the result of an open up submission exhibition proven by the Royal Modern society of Painter-Printmakers. The intention of the exhibition is to celebrate the very best in all forms of contemporary printmaking.

These consist of

  • aquatint etching
  • chine collé
  • copperplate engraving
  • digital 
  • drypoint
  • etching
  • giclee
  • hand stencilled screenprint
  • higher relief carborundum
  • intaglio gravure
  • laser engraved woodcut
  • linocut
  • lithograph
  • mezzotint
  • mokuhanga (h2o-primarily based woodblock)

  • photopolymer etching
  • risograph
  • screenprint
  • silkscreen and woodcut
  • smooth floor
  • solar etching
  • stone lithography
  • woodcut and stencil
  • woodblock

and variants on the higher than.

It is really also an exhibition with a large variety of sponsors of the two the exhibition and/or personal awards.

The general bias of issue matter is both abstracted or landscape oriented with fewer photos of men and women than you could possibly be expecting. 


The performs hung have also been selected from hundreds of entries. 

The visitor selectors this calendar year were:

  • Katriona Gillespie – a present-day Australian artwork skilled
  • Nadia Phillips – a curator
  • Dr John Phillips – previous Director of the London Print Studio


1 remark I would make is that this exhibition has NOT marketed as numerous as I believe it could and should really have carried out. 

I assume there might be three explanations for this

  • the Edition dimensions is not observed on the label up coming to the print – and I never ever ever get a unframed print with out figuring out what the version measurement is (The details is offered – it truly is just not there to seize the second when any individual is interested!)
  • I have not noticed a lot of internet marketing for the exhibition – and there are incredibly couple social media posts about it.
  • which is in section down to artists not building the energy to market place their perform both! Gail Brodholt’s write-up is an isolated contribution!


PS If browsing you might be intrigued in observing the Lubaina Humid exhibition following door at Tate Modern-day – which also finishes on 2nd October. 

I have uploaded some photos from that exhibition to my Making A Mark Fb Webpage – see below
