Brent Artists Resource: Exhibition in Print

The Show

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 at the Gallery at Willesden Green will concentrate on prints: monoprints, etchings, screenprints, lithographs, lino and woodcuts – prints combined with other media

You will know that we are always eager to hear about our members’ art-related activities, especially one-person exhibitions, and to publicize these in the blog and newsletter. We also now have in place a team of reviewers who have covered FPS Group and other London exhibitions in recent years.

These you will no doubt have read and we hope you will agree that they add an attractive and, indeed, a very useful addition to the blog/newsletter. We are keen to extend this review service to our own members, so that in the course of the year we can present a mix of informed writing both on the current work of FPS artists, and on the art scene generally.

If you are planning a one-person show in the near future, or making a significant contribution to a group, and would be interested in an independent review for our publications, please contact
‘FPS Review Service’
282 St. John’s Road,
Hemel Hempstead,
Herts HP1 1QG

Alternatively e-mail or ring 01442 264766.

Please include your contact details.

Practical considerations mean that for the time being the service would have to focus on London and the South-East.
