‘The Art of British Printmaking’

Printmakers Council Members Janet Milner and Tessa Holmes are exhibiting their prints in the The Art of British Printmaking Rye Art Gallery

Printmaking has been a key part of the language of art for many centuries and the focus of this exhibition is to show printmaking, particularly as an original form of artistic expression as well as the means of disseminating and reproducing work. The show represents the different processes of printmaking such as etching; woodcuts; lino prints; lithography as well as screenprinting. The exhibition has a local focus but as with the recent exhibitions staged at Rye Art Gallery, the show is curated alongside important works held in the permanent collections including those by Sir Frank Short, Robert Sargeant Austin, Margaret Barnard, John Piper, Piranesi, Paul Nash, Edward Burra, Norman Ackroyd, and Edward Twohig.
