Hadrian’s Wall 1900 Collaborative Print Exhibition

Florence Arts Centre, Florence Mine, Sherwens Terrace, Egremont, West Cumbria CA22 2NR

Delivered by Florence Arts Centre

A collaborative print for Hadrian’s Wall 1900 has bought together 60 printmakers from 3 studios across northern England for a truly unique exhibition. Each printmaker has responded to their own stretch of the wall, creating a fascinating exhibition interpreting the full 80 Roman miles of the wall. There are original artworks, cards and gifts for sale.

This project has been a great opportunity for artists to respond to a new challenge, to really get to know a section of Hadrian’s Wall and in doing so explore their own printmaking practice. It is fascinating to see how everyone has found something different to focus upon in their print – landscape, archaeology, nature – all the things that make a visit to Hadrian’s Wall such a special experience.

The exhibition includes almost every printmaking process you can think of including fine examples of linocuts, woodcuts, monoprints, screenprints, etchings and more with each artist giving an insight into how they approached their work.

The bringing together of 60 artists – professional, beginners or accomplished amateurs to make one large
artwork – epitomises what the three studios are about, bringing people together around a shared interest in printmaking – and what’s more we get to celebrate the wonderful landscape and heritage of the region.

Exhibition runs 12th November – 18th December (open Friday – Sunday)
