This evening we took down our first Espacio Gallery Printmakers' show. Some of us have shown work together in other collective shows, but this is the first time it has all been print related.
Eighteen of Espacio's printmakers, with eighteen different ideas about images, techniques,size, presentation, framing - it couldnt have been more diverse and certainly proved very interesting for fellow artists and visitors alike. The quality was superb, feedback was terrific, and sales reflected this. Many thanks to all who purchased our works.
For some reason, unknown to all, original prints are still the best bargain around in the artworld - a recent visit to the Bankside Gallery's RE annual show confirmed this - superbly executed and framed fairly large etchings for £200-300, by well known artists. Incredible value.
