Deadline draws near for artists wanting to take part in Inprint Biennale

By janetuplin |

The deadline is drawing near for artists to submit work to be considered tor Inprint Biennale, being held on both sides of the river as part of Hull City of Culture celebrations.

Artists can submit a maximum of two prints or pieces for the exhibition which is being held at Barrton upon Humber’s The Ropewalk and Hull’s Studio Eleven and KAG Gallery from mid September to the end of October.

This second Inprint Biennale follows on from the highly successful pilot show in 2015 and is being curated by Rob Moore, formerly of Barrow upon Humber and now of Scarborough.

“Artists from across the country are being invited to submit work which will be shown alongside an invited print workshop to showcase the work of its artists which this year is the esteemed Edinburgh Printmakers,” said Richard Hatfield, Exhibitions Officer at The Ropewalk.

“Hopefully this exhibition that spans both banks of the Humber will take advantage of the much increased visitor numbers to galleries in the city and the surrounding area,” he went on.

All original printmaking methods are acceptable with works originated and conceived as a print and produced in limited quantity but no reproduction prints (such as Giclee) will be accepted.

Printed art based ceramics will be considered and both The Ropewalk and Studio Eleven have limited facilities for showing such work.

Submission for work is on September 1, 2 and 3 and entry forms, information for artists and labels can be downloaded from The Ropewalk’s website www.the-ropewalk.co.uk

The exhibition will run concurrently at The Ropewalk,  and the Studio Eleven and KAG Galleries in the Fruit Market of Hull from September 16th to October 29.

A Little Country Living

An exhibition of photographs by Twink Addison.

Twink was born and brought up in South Somercotes in Lincolnshire. She went back to live there with her late husband John, when she was in her twenties. They settled into a small draughty cottage at the end of a farm track.

Life is solitary without being lonely.

The landscape is generally agricultural and the sea is not far away. The seasons are experienced at full strength. She has a close acquaintance with the local fauna and flora, whether dead or alive.

Transcending the Figure

Paul Digby’s ongoing project to explore and celebrate the front-line heroes of the public sector seems ever more pertinent today.

“This representation of the emergency services as statuesque, massively sculptural figures in splendid isolation. They are isolated pictorially, and this actually reminds us that these crucial and often very separate roles that our emergency services play in our lives can be isolating and at times, traumatic. They are ordinary people who perform extraordinary roles and in my experience possess extraordinary abilities and determination.”

Professor Neil Powell, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Norwich University of the Arts.

Lucy Reid

Landscapes have always inspired Lucy. She has a passion and pull toward remote or isolated places, nature and our place within our environment; of how we choose to live carefully within it so that we leave as little damage as we can. Lucy endeavours to capture the feeling of isolation and the wildness of a place so that the viewer can imagine that they hear the breeze blowing through the grasses, the wind scouring across the beach or the call of a wading bird in the dunes. These places arouse different feelings: comforting, unsettling, eerie, lonely, peaceful, they can bring solace and rest, inspiration or a decision to be made. Lucy has woven these feelings into her landscapes and will continue to capture the moment each time she visits a new place. Each landscape is worked from personal photographs taken during travels around Britain.

It is like I am revisiting the place again. I wish to convey this through each unique landscape”.
