Prints From The Last Three Decades!

Since 1977 Belfast Print Workshop has been a hub of activity for both local and international artists. Every year they run at least one artist in residence programme where an artist can study various printmaking techniques and create artworks using the printmaking facilities available and the expert knowledge of the staff and members.

Since its foundation Belfast Print Workshop has collected works from all the artists who have worked with them and they have an extensive archive of artworks from well-respected artists. BPW are proud to announce they will be launching an exhibition of prints from their archive.

Many of the artists who have worked with Belfast Print Workshop in the last 33 years have given copies of editioned prints. This means Belfast Print Workshop are able to exhibit and sell prints from their archive and still keep a copy of these valuable prints in their archive for posterity.

This will be an amazing opportunity to pick up a rare hidden gem from a collection of artworks that have been meticulously looked after for the last 33 years. It is expected to be a sell out show due to the high quality of works and the calibre of artists who have produced prints at Belfast Print Workshop.

‘33’ is being exhibited in the Belfast Print Workshop Gallery on Waring Street opposite the Merchant Hotel. The opening night of the exhibition is happening on Thursday 4th March from 7pm to 9pm and it will run until Monday 29th March. Belfast Print Workshop look forward to seeing you there!

Artists include:

Basil Blackshaw, Hugh McDonald, Elizabeth Taggart, Neil Shawcross, Jack Pakenham, James Allen, Ivan Armstrong, Camilla Brown, Josephine McCormick, Tom Carr, Richard Croft, Hughie O'Donaghue, David Dubose, Norman Fraser, Felim Egan, Alphonso Monreal, Gordon Woods, Valeska Zabel, David Evans.... and many more!!
