The UK’s largest printmaking exhibition
Returning for a sixth year, Rheged’s bespoke celebration of the printmaker’s art is the largest exhibition of its kind in the UK.
Great Print 6 brings together more than 900 original artworks by 65 UK-based printmakers. On the walls of our spacious gallery 465 framed works are grouped together by method, providing an insight into the different techniques, from ancient to modern, used by artists to create hand-pulled prints.
Every woodcut, linocut, lithograph, screen print, collograph, cyanotype and digital print on display is a piece of original art that is available to buy. A further 450 unframed pieces can be viewed in the browsers.
During the past five years Great Print has established a reputation for showcasing both established and emerging artists. Among this year’s exhibitors are nine Cumbria-based printmakers, including Sarah Cemmick, Polly Marix Evans, Mark Pearce and Alan Stones.
Work by our exhibitors also features on postcards and greetings cards in our Design Shop, where we have curated a selection of tools and materials for aspiring and experienced printmakers.
Entry to Great Print 6 is free but limited to advance online bookings to ensure social distancing.
