Somerset Printmakers was formed in 1998 as an association of professional artists who live and work in Somerset.
The core aim of the group when exhibiting is to demonstrate and celebrate the diversity and complexity of what constitutes a print. Traditional methods remain the prime processes in the work of many of these artists, each with their own unique style, including etching, woodcut, relief, lino, collagraph, screen & mono-printing. Skills in these areas of printmaking are for some the roots of more experimental work.
This is the third time that the group has exhibited with us here, the first time was November 2021, and we are delighted to welcome back returning members to the gallery - Julia Manning RE, Cath Bloomfield, Gail Mason, Pennie Elfick, Sue Lowe, Jane Mowat, Sarah Ward, Jenny Graham, Sally Hebeler and Sebastian Chance. New to the gallery this year is artist Susan Gradwell and new member of the group Lucy Rodgers.
As a group, they have exhibited at Spike Island in Bristol, the Contemporary Print Show at the Barbican Centre London, the International Print Fairs in Bremen and Hamburg Germany, the Fresh Art Fair in London and numerous Galleries throughout the west country.
OPENING TIMES: Tuesdays to Saturdays 9-4pm
