An Evening of Printmaking with Helen Fay
Find out about the printmaking methods of Helen Fay and the inspiration behind her work
Thurs 25 March 7pm
£5 to attend online
Helen Fay is an artist and printmaker whose drawings and etchings capture the beauty, dignity and character of animals.
Influenced by Japanese and Chinese prints and drawings and the 19th and 20th Century European artists who were influenced by them too Helen is currently focussing on how animals are intertwined with our domestic and family life.
"I want to capture moments such as a dog flopped on a chair after a long walk or watching the world whilst their owner stops for a coffee or a lazy old cat sunning itself, content in it's old age. More intimate and everyday than dramatic subjects. I hope to capture these small moments that surround us when we have animals in our life."
The money from tickets sold for this event will go towards helping keep Northern Print operating in this challenging time. We look forward to virtually seeing you.

Thinking of buying an original print priced at £100 or above*?
We are members of Own Art, a national scheme funded by Arts Council England that makes it easy and affordable for everyone to buy contemporary art.
Own Art allows you to spread the cost of a purchase of an original artwork over 10 months with an interest free loan. With so many works of art to choose from, you could start a collection of your own today from as little as £10 per month.
To help explain the scheme, here are our answers to some frequently asked questions:
What can I buy?
Own Art loans are available in our gallery for the purchase of contemporary art and craft by living artists. That means you can choose more or less anything you want from paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture, to glassware, ceramics, jewellery and textiles.
How much can I borrow?
Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,500 for the purchase of works of art by living artists.
How do I apply?
After you've found something in our gallery or online that you love, speak with a member of staff who can talk you through your options on 0191 2617000. You are able to pay a deposit with Own Art to lower your monthly costs although this is not necessary and the loan can cover framing if you wish. The best option is to visit the gallery if you would like to proceed with an Own Art application where a member of our team will take you through the loan application process. You will need to bring proof of ID, address and signature - a driving licence is ideal or a utility bill and credit or debit card. The application process usually takes 10-15 mins following which you'll get an instant decision so you can take the work home on the same day.
