GLOSSARY


A lot of people think that printmaking is about reproductions. Nothing could be further from the truth. Each print in Glossary is an original. That is to say it doesn't exist in any other form and was conceived and made purely as a print.

Artists: Stephen Chambers RA - Rachael Clewlow - Tom Hammick - Bridget Jones - Katherine Jones - Julian Meredith - Hilary Paynter

Glossary celebrates the very best in contemporary printmaking and takes the viewer on a journey into the private studios of seven artists working in the UK today through a series of specially commissioned films by Alan Fentiman which you can view below.

"I am a primary teacher working in Middlesbrough. I saw the Glossary exhibition advertised in MIMA and drove to Durham yesterday to view it. I loved it. It has totally inspired me. I am now planning a series of printing workshops for my pupils next half term."

Spetchells Centre in Prudhoe,  
The Gallery at Gateshead Library as part of the International Print Biennale,
