Exhibition Time!

23 Jun

I’ve been more proactive this year in applying for exhibitions and trying to get my work seen by a wider audience, and although it costs to submit work, so far it seems to be paying off as I have three events coming up in the next few months!

I’ll be showing three pieces of work at next weeks’ Royal Norfolk Show, 28th and 29th of June, this is my third year of taking part and as I sold both works last year I have been invited to submit three this time… On show will be my latest etching of Granddad and friends – ‘The MG’, as well as ‘Millicent’- a portrait of my Grandma and an early etching of mine – ‘Granddad’.

I’m excited to have recently found out that ‘The MG’ has also been shortlisted for the Holt Festival – Sir John Hurt Art Prize exhibition, 24th -31st July! A great selection of works by local artists will be on show and the prize will be announced by Lady Anwen Hurt on Sunday the 23rd of July!

‘The MG’ £195 unframed £230 framed

I’m also taking part in the 22nd (my 5th) Norwich Print Fair from the 4th – 16th of September. For this I’ve been working on some new prints based on ‘the hand-made’ and so far have produced some portraits of volunteers at the John Jarrold Printing Museum. Below are two new prints that are a combination of etching and collagraph, ‘Bill’ and ‘Jerry’.

I’m still waiting to hear if I have got into the Woolwich Print Fair in London, 20th – 23rd October… Watch this space!

Printmaking Courses: Summer Term!

10 Mar

Enrolments for courses are now open for the summer term at Wensum Lodge!

Due to popular demand, I am now running two ‘Lino Printing for Beginners’ courses, one on Monday evenings (10 weeks) from 7-9pm and on Thursday mornings (12 weeks) from 10am-12pm.

There is also a ‘Printmaking – next steps’ course (10 weeks) available on Monday afternoons from 2-4pm. This will cover a range of techniques including drypoint, lino cut, monoprint and collagraph…

I am hoping to also get my ‘Intaglio for Beginners’ course up and running again, involving drypoint and etching, will soon update if this goes ahead!

The Norwich Print Fair

16 Aug

I was asked just two weeks ago if I would like to take part in this year’s Norwich Print Fair, luckily I had already been busy producing a new series of work based on old family photos from the 1930s in Ireland! The first print in the series, ‘Granddad’, was produced while at NUA back in 2008 and last year I accompanied this with ‘Grandma’. However, I have a wonderful collection of old photos, many featuring old cars and various family members – all taken by an anonymous photographer – and I decided to produce a body of work to celebrate them!

Below is a sample of what will be on show at the exhibition… You can also buy selected works from my ETSY page https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/lwhiteprints?ref=hdr_shop_menu  or email me via slippersandhats@hotmail.com

 

The exhibition takes places at St Margaret’s Church on St Benedict’s St, Norwich from the 5th – 17th of September! Come along and support the local printmaking scene!!
