5th British International|
Miniature Print Exhibition
A new and exciting exhibition opens at Stirling's Smith
Art Gallery and Museum on Saturday 3 April.
Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries have taken on the running of this 5th
biennial exhibition from the Off Centre Gallery in Bristol who
previously ran the exhibition four times with a UK wide touring
schedule. Comments from visitors to past exhibitions include:
The aim of this 5th exhibition was to make a selection of contemporary fine art printmaking of the highest quality in all respects. Over 400 individuals submitted over 1200 prints and the selection panel met at the end of July 2003 to undertake the mammoth and difficult task of selecting down to the required number for exhibition.
The selection panel comprised: Friedhard Kiekeben, RSA, and tutor on
Gracefield's International Summer School, Sarah Van Niekerk, a highly
respected wood engraver, John McKechie, Director, Glasgow Print Studio,
Peter Ford and Christine Higgot of the Off Centre Gallery, and
Gracefield's Arts Officer, Dawn Henderby.
There is a huge range of styles and methods represented in this year's show, from screen printing and etching to digital and photographic techniques. And it is a truly international representation with contributions from Canada, Brazil, Lithuania, Australia, USA, Japan and China. The UK is well represented too with entries from every corner of the country. The exhibition is touring to four Scottish venues including the Smith, before heading over the border to go to museums and art galleries across England until the end of 2005.As the exhibition organisers commented: "This exhibition has something for everyone, and with prices for prints starting from as little as £15.00, it definitely confirms the notion that the best things come in small packages!"
