2nd International Original Print Exhibition (2022)

I went to see the Intercontinental Initial Print Exhibition 2022 at the Bankside Gallery on the South Bank on Tuesday. It finishes on Sunday 2nd October.

I can definitely extremely advise it as a varied selection of unique great artwork prints which reveal the range in diverse approaches to print-making

The prints also different amongst the pretty vibrant and monochrome.

All the operates exhibited are the result of an open submission exhibition founded by the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. The goal of the exhibition is to celebrate the greatest in all types of present-day printmaking.

These include

  • aquatint etching
  • chine collé
  • copperplate engraving
  • digital 
  • drypoint
  • etching
  • giclee
  • hand stencilled screenprint
  • superior aid carborundum
  • intaglio gravure
  • laser engraved woodcut
  • linocut
  • lithograph

  • soft ground
  • photo voltaic etching
  • stone lithography
  • woodcut and stencil
  • woodblock

and variants on the earlier mentioned.

It is also an exhibition with a large variety of sponsors of each the exhibition and/or particular person awards.

The in general bias of issue make a difference is both abstracted or landscape oriented with less images of persons than you could expect. 


The performs hung have also been picked from 1000’s of entries. 

The guest selectors this yr had been:

  • Katriona Gillespie – a present-day Australian artwork professional
  • Nadia Phillips – a curator
  • Dr John Phillips – previous Director of the London Print Studio


1 comment I would make is that this exhibition has NOT sold as several as I assume it could and ought to have completed. 

I think there may well be 3 causes for this

  • the Version dimension is not observed on the label subsequent to the print – and I hardly ever ever obtain a unframed print devoid of figuring out what the edition dimensions is (The data is readily available – it’s just not there to seize the instant when somebody is interested!)
  • I have not observed a lot of marketing and advertising for the exhibition – and there are incredibly couple social media posts about it.
  • which is in aspect down to artists not earning the effort and hard work to market place their do the job both! Gail Brodholt’s publish is an isolated contribution!


PS If going to you might be intrigued in looking at the Lubaina Humid exhibition subsequent door at Tate Modern – which also finishes on 2nd October. 

I have uploaded some images from that exhibition to my Producing A Mark Facebook Web page – see below
