2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)

I went to see the Worldwide First Print Exhibition 2022 at the Bankside Gallery on the South Bank on Tuesday. It finishes on Sunday 2nd Oct.

I can undoubtedly highly recommend it as a assorted assortment of authentic good artwork prints which display the diversity in various strategies to print-making

The prints also varied amongst the quite colourful and monochrome.

All the functions exhibited are the result of an open up submission exhibition set up by the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate the very best in all types of present-day printmaking.

These consist of

  • aquatint etching
  • chine collé
  • copperplate engraving
  • digital 
  • drypoint
  • etching
  • giclee
  • hand stencilled screenprint
  • large relief carborundum
  • intaglio gravure
  • laser engraved woodcut
  • linocut
  • lithograph
  • mezzotint
  • mokuhanga (h2o-centered woodblock)

  • photopolymer etching
  • risograph
  • screenprint
  • silkscreen and woodcut
  • delicate floor
  • photo voltaic etching
  • stone lithography
  • woodcut and stencil
  • woodblock

and versions on the previously mentioned.

It’s also an exhibition with a extensive wide range of sponsors of both of those the exhibition and/or unique awards.

The general bias of topic issue is possibly abstracted or landscape oriented with less photographs of persons than you may expect. 


The functions hung have also been chosen from hundreds of entries. 

The guest selectors this yr ended up:

  • Katriona Gillespie – a present-day Australian artwork specialist
  • Nadia Phillips – a curator
  • Dr John Phillips – previous Director of the London Print Studio

Product sales

One particular comment I would make is that this exhibition has NOT sold as several as I believe it could and need to have performed. 

I imagine there may be 3 causes for this

  • the Version dimension is not observed on the label following to the print – and I never ever at any time invest in a unframed print without understanding what the version dimension is (The information is accessible – it is really just not there to seize the second when somebody is interested!)
  • I’ve not found a whole lot of advertising and marketing for the exhibition – and there are really handful of social media posts about it.
  • which is in aspect down to artists not producing the exertion to market their function both! Gail Brodholt’s put up is an isolated contribution!


PS If visiting you could be interested in viewing the Lubaina Humid exhibition next doorway at Tate Present day – which also finishes on 2nd October. 

I have uploaded some pictures from that exhibition to my Producing A Mark Fb Web page – see under
