We’re just back in the studio after a very happy and productive week at Dartmoor Arts 2014. About 300 prints were made by the 10 students, mostly unique sheets. A real mixture of processes, carborundum, drypoint, screenprint and woodcut.
Mali Morris A new edition, Bridge, is just completed. A 10 colour screenprint. For more details check the website or Printed Editions.
Peter Randall Page.
Peter has been with us this week working on 8 new prints. Real fun, new techniques and much invention. The artwork is done, now the proofing begins.
Sculptors think differently.
All this week Ellen Lanyon from New York has been with us, a real treat.
We have proofed four editions for the Curiosities suite which will be printed in colour very soon.
Ellen has also made three sets of hand coloured proofs which will be released in the Autumn.
Yesterday we had John Mclean in the studio working on 2 new prints. The prints are a combination of dry point etching and screen printing. It’s always a pleasure to have John in the studio.
More info on the prints coming soon…
Thank you to everyone who came to the Studio summer party. Good to see you all.
A busy weekend. Down to St. Ives to get Iain Robertson’s edition signed.
Daedalus is an exciting venture from The Print Studio, Cambridge. Each year, two renowned artists are commissioned to create a print each specifically for the Daedalus club. The prints are limited to an edition of 70, with 50 provided to the members of the club. The remaining 20 prints are sold by the artists at their full retail price. The first year, we were very fortunate to have the enthusiastic support of John McLean and Stephen Chambers, two gifted and highly regarded artists. Both have worked extensively with the studio in the past. In 2011 two leading New York artists, Willard Boepple and Ellen Lanyon kindly agreed to make work for Daedalus. Both of them have a considerable reputation for their graphic work which is held in many important collections.
We are very happy to announce that the artists who have been selected for 2012 are Michael Brick and Claerwen James. Michael Brick has just completed his print ‘Double Earth’. It is a 6 colour screenprint with varnish on Somerset Velvet 300gsm paper and measures 65 x 49cm. Claerwen James will be making her print later in the year which will be her first ever screenprint edition. You can see some of her monoprints here.
Envisaged as a long term venture, the Daedalus Club invite two new artists to participate each year, though membership will be restricted to 50. This small, select community provides a rare opportunity for members to become closely involved in the working life of one of the UK’s finest printmaking studios, whilst building an exceptionally affordable collection of first rate work by some of the world’s best artists.
- Two prints each year (at no additional cost to the membership fee). Your membership number will correspond to the edition number on your prints. Members will receive the first print when they join and the second after six months.
- A 20% discount on the purchase of any other prints available from the Print Studio’s extensive stock list during your term of membership.
- An invitation to you and your guests to two exclusive studio events. There will be a summer ‘open studio’ with a chance to meet the artists and the printers. In the winter there will be an exhibition of recent work.
- Invitations to private views or gallery exhibitions associated with the Print Studio.
