Meet the artists: Friday 5 August, 6 to 8pm
In Two Parts brings two new and exciting collections of original prints to Lombard Street Gallery in Margate Old Town. Having had two successful shows in Margate over recent years the Printmakers Council are delighted to return with an exhibition featuring work by 58 of its members. Printmakers Council has no house style, rather embracing all forms of contemporary and traditional printmaking. Their growing membership means that exhibitions are selected from an increasingly wider pool of artists from around the UK and abroad, keeping exhibitions lively and fresh.
While both shows include a wide range of ideas, concerns and techniques, in very general terms Part One tends towards softer and calmer works, while Part Two makes a bolder statement with a predominance of colour and impact. However this is not a hard and fast rule.
Part One takes the viewer from land to sea – via screen-printed piers, linocut beaches, and etched landscapes; up mountains and into space! Other works in Part One explore the abstract world through careful line and form, whilst some focus on the figure as the subject or starting point.
