Print Collectors' Morning and Own Art
Please note this event has changed!
Sat 23 June 18
11 - 12.30am
To celebrate the opening weekend of the Great Exhibition of the North, spend a morning finding out about original prints with Northern Print.
You will be able to see an array of prints by studio artists, national and international artists – including etchings, screenprints, relief prints and many more. Anna Wilkinson, Northern Print’s Director will be on hand to answer questions about choosing and collecting original prints.
We will be bringing out a selection of the unframed prints which are not usually on view in the gallery. This will include prints by a number of our artists who have been selected for this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
Northern Print is part of the Own Art scheme offering interest free loans to buy contemporary art. You can receive a loan of between £100 and £2,500 which can be used to purchase single or multiple pieces and can also cover the cost of framing if you wish. Mhairi Grant, Programmes Manager at Own Art will be giving a talk about the initiative at 1pm at The Biscuit Factory. To book a place for this free event please click here
We are a short walk from The Biscuit Factory who will be hosting The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair this weekend – so why not make a day of it and enjoy both events!
