A BAR members EXHIBITION
17th February – 19th March 2009
Is printmaking a cheat’s way of escaping the rigours of painting and drawing, or is it one of the greatest means of artistic expression? Certainly artists from Rembrandt to Picasso were fascinated by the medium (or media) and they had more limited techniques at their disposal than are available today. But you don’t need an expensive press or complicated equipment to produce interesting prints. Black paint, paper, pencil and a rolling pin (or even a potato) can provide hours of enjoyment and experiment, and remarkable results. The next BAR exhibition will concentrate on prints: monoprints, etchings, screenprints, lithographs, lino and woodcuts – prints combined with other media.
