Terry Frost and Artizan Editions

We have been working quite intensely over the past few months on our string of Summer exhibitions, which were kicked off in some style a little over a week ago with the opening of our Terry Frost ‘Works on Paper’ show and a striking exhibition of Original Screenprints made by Artizan Editions. The two shows run concurrently until the 2nd of May, so you have plenty of time to come and enjoy them! The main gallery is full of the joyful sketches, studies, maquettes, early watercolours and more substantial works on paper by Frost, and in today’s sunshine many of them are singing from the walls! Terry’s son Anthony was with us at the opening, enthusiastically recounting some fascinating background to a large number of his father’s works. It’s always a pleasure working with the family. Sally Gimson of Artizan Editions, a very talented printer who has worked closely with some outstanding artists, particularly her fantastic work with Bridget Riley, was also on hand to talk about the great prints she has produced. We are very keen to promote ‘proper’ printmaking, particularly in light of the veritable torrent of flat, digitally produced prints that clutter the ‘art’ market. It’s both refreshing and reassuring to see that great quality printmaking still happens in the world! Below is a small group of informal shots of the current installation and the Private View of 16th April. Also included are some press clippings from our local newspapers.
