IMPRESS Printmaking Festival returns to The Museum in the Park
March 2016 sees the welcome return of the Impress Printmaking Festival at venues across Stroud and the Cotswolds.
Organised by the Thrupp-based Gloucestershire Print Co-operative (GPC), this international festival celebrates every type of print-making through a varied programme of exhibitions, workshops and events across Stroud and the Cotswolds.
The Museum in the Park hosts an eclectic exhibition showcasing work by established and highly acclaimed British artists Peter Blake and Paula Rego and up and coming printmaker Caroline Walker.
The Museum also showcases a fascinating selection of contemporary prints from Hunan Province, China, brought to Stroud via a collaboration between Aberystwyth University Print department and The Printmaking Committee of the Hunan Artist's Association.
The exhibition includes a wide variety of printmaking mediums and approaches and will be accompanied by family drop in workshops on Sunday 6th March and Sunday 20th March. Peter Blake's richly detailed ‘Under Milk Wood' illustrations will be brought to life through readings and music at a special event on Thursday 24th March (book soon if you want to secure a seat!).
Thanks to support from Stroud Festival, a series of Wednesday evening openings has been arranged. The exhibition will be open until 8pm on Wednesdays 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th March, offering those who work or study during the day a chance to enjoy visiting ‘after hours'.
This celebration of printmaking is well worth a visit!
The Impress '16 Printmaking Exhibition at The Museum in the Park runs from Saturday 5th to Wednesday 30th March (closed Mondays).
