2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)


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

I can surely remarkably suggest it as a assorted selection of original great art prints which display the range in distinctive ways to print-generating

The prints also varied involving the very colourful and monochrome.

All the performs exhibited are the result of an open up submission exhibition established by the Royal Modern society of Painter-Printmakers. The intention of the exhibition is to rejoice the ideal in all types of contemporary printmaking.

These contain

  • aquatint etching
  • chine collé
  • copperplate engraving
  • digital 
  • drypoint
  • etching
  • giclee
  • hand stencilled screenprint
  • significant reduction carborundum
  • intaglio gravure
  • laser engraved woodcut
  • linocut
  • lithograph
  • mezzotint
  • mokuhanga (drinking water-primarily based woodblock)
  • monotype
  • photolithography
  • photopolymer etching
  • risograph
  • screenprint
  • silkscreen and woodcut
  • soft ground
  • photo voltaic etching
  • stone lithography
  • woodcut and stencil
  • woodblock

and variations on the over.

It can be also an exhibition with a vast wide range of sponsors of each the exhibition and/or particular person awards.

The all round bias of matter issue is either abstracted or landscape oriented with much less visuals of people than you could possibly anticipate. 


The functions hung have also been picked from thousands of entries. 

The visitor selectors this calendar year were:

  • Katriona Gillespie – a modern day Australian artwork skilled
  • 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 offered as a lot of as I believe it could and must have accomplished. 

I think there might be a few causes for this

  • the Edition size is not pointed out on the label subsequent to the print – and I in no way at any time acquire a unframed print with out realizing what the edition dimension is (The facts is accessible – it is just not there to seize the second when somebody is intrigued!)
  • I have not witnessed a ton of advertising and marketing for the exhibition – and there are very handful of social media posts about it.
  • which is in portion down to artists not generating the work to marketplace their work possibly! Gail Brodholt’s post is an isolated contribution!


PS If visiting you may be fascinated in looking at the Lubaina Humid exhibition up coming door at Tate Modern day – which also finishes on 2nd October. 

I’ve uploaded some shots from that exhibition to my Earning A Mark Fb Web site – see down below
