Past Impressions - 30 Years in Print
Glasgow Print Studio, First Floor Gallery
Exhibition Runs: 12th September - 1st November 2009
Preview: Friday 11th September 6pm - 9pm 2009
A précis of the fabulous work produced at Glasgow Print Studio over three decades, this exhibition is also the culmination of the initial stages of a larger archive project. Two years of cataloguing and conserving a treasure trove of art works, printing blocks and plates, associated drawings and related objects has ensured the preservation of the largest and most significant collection of printmaking in Scotland from the 1970s to present day. Bringing together work from the archive by a number of international contemporary artists alongside artists already firmly placed in the canon of Scottish art, this exhibition will feature works by John Bellany, Elizabeth Blackadder, Alasdair Gray, Barbara Rae, Christine Borland, Hanneline Visnes, Richard Wright, Martin Boyce and many others. New Glasgow Boys Adrian Wiszniewski, Ken Currie, Peter Howson and Steven Campbell are also well represented in the collection.
