'Editions 2022 Print Prize'
Wednesday 11 - Saturday 28 May 2022
The judges decided to split the exhibition and awarded the Editions Print Prize to Paula McLoughlin and Laura Osborne.
Editions has, for 10 years, celebrated all aspects of printmaking and Victorian-based printmakers. A curated exhibition, up to three works (with no size limit) per artist and between 35-55 artists shown annually, the breadth and diversity of Editions has resulted the presentation of more than 200 printmakers: a few selected each year (Damon Kowarsky and Lisa Sewards hold the record of appearing in all 10), many applying alternate years or simply occasionally.
An exhibition previously described by Imprint magazine as the go-to event for Victorian printmakers: we continue to strive to celebrate the diverse aesthetic qualities inherent within printmaking media, a celebration of tradition whilst embracing contemporary innovations within the printed form. For the 10th anniversary, we are celebrating the event by introducing the Editions Print Prize.
The Prize will be awarded to one artist as determined by the judges who best reflects quality and who celebrates that tradition whilst embracing contemporary innovations within the printed form.
