2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)

2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)

I went to see the Worldwide Primary Print Exhibition 2022 at the Bankside Gallery on the South Financial institution on Tuesday. It finishes on Sunday 2nd Oct.

I can certainly remarkably recommend it as a numerous selection of initial wonderful artwork prints which show the range in different methods to print-generating

The prints also assorted amongst the incredibly colourful and monochrome.

All the operates exhibited are the result of an open up submission exhibition proven by the Royal Culture of Painter-Printmakers. The aim of the exhibition is to rejoice the finest in all forms of modern day printmaking.

These include things like

  • aquatint etching
  • chine collé
  • copperplate engraving
  • digital 
  • drypoint
  • etching
  • giclee
  • hand stencilled screenprint
  • high aid carborundum
  • intaglio gravure
  • laser engraved woodcut
  • linocut
  • lithograph
  • mezzotint
  • mokuhanga (h2o-based woodblock)
  • monotype
  • photolithography
  • photopolymer etching
  • risograph
  • screenprint
  • silkscreen and woodcut
  • tender floor
  • photo voltaic etching
  • stone lithography
  • woodcut and stencil
  • woodblock

and versions on the higher than.

It is also an exhibition with a wide selection of sponsors of both of those the exhibition and/or person awards.

The overall bias of issue subject is both abstracted or landscape oriented with less photographs of men and women than you may possibly expect. 


The is effective hung have also been chosen from countless numbers of entries. 

The guest selectors this year were being:

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


Just one remark I would make is that this exhibition has NOT marketed as lots of as I imagine it could and ought to have performed. 

I assume there may possibly be 3 explanations for this

  • the Version measurement is not mentioned on the label following to the print – and I never at any time get a unframed print without having recognizing what the edition dimension is (The facts is out there – it is just not there to seize the moment when somebody is fascinated!)
  • I’ve not observed a ton of advertising and marketing for the exhibition – and there are quite couple of social media posts about it.
  • which is in section down to artists not making the energy to current market their operate either! Gail Brodholt’s post is an isolated contribution!


PS If traveling to you could be intrigued in viewing the Lubaina Humid exhibition future doorway at Tate Modern – which also finishes on 2nd October. 

I have uploaded some photographs from that exhibition to my Earning A Mark Fb Website page – see below
