"Eve" - mezzotint triptych

This year I joined the East London Printmakers and am taking part in their Festival of Print with my original print mezzotint prints, diptych "Words" and triptych "Eve".

East London Printmakers is an artist-run studio in Mile End, London. Its annual members' show called Festival of Print is taking place at the Art Pavilion in Mile End Park, from Friday 26 November to Sunday 5 December

The ELP studio provides facilities for intaglio and screenprinting, and runs excellent printmaking courses. In September 2021 I took their course in Screenprinting which I wholehartedly recommend.

Exciting for me news - I am an exhibitor at the WCPF 2021!

Continuing on the success of the mezzotint print "Words" - 2 at the International Print Center NY, now both parts of what was intended as a diptych "Words"  were selected for the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair. The Fair is one of the largest and most prestigous events of the printmaking world. This is the first time I've submitted my work and being accepted is a thrill. Looking forwad to visiting the exhibition in person.

The event runs 11-14 of November 2021. There will be demonstrations and generally lots of interesting things to expreince.
