Easter Saturday

Join us on Saturday 31st March around noon when Martin Langford will be demonstrating printmaking outside our gallery in Gabriel's Wharf.  This is your chance to have a go!

Everybody is welcome.  Young and not-so-young.  You are invited to make your very own print using a drypoint technique and Martin will guide you through the process that he applies so brilliantly in his own work.

The Wharf will be bristling with chocolate eggs for you and your children to hunt down.  They will be hidden in the various independant shops and restaurants and when you're tired of searching and printing you can relax and enjoy the live music and vibrant atmosphere with a cup of coffee from Sarni's, a pie from the 5 star Pieminster or a delicious meal from Studio 6.

Lumiere London on the South Bank

Starting on Thursday 18th to 21st parts of the capital will be transformed by a magnificent and imaginitive display of light designed by international and national artists.  Transfiguring familiar landmarks and architecture, it is a sight not to be missed!

Why not come early?  Drop in and see us while darkness falls, grab something to eat and then watch Eye Love London - the Coca Cola London Eye as it illuminates the South Bank in a incandescent fanfare of light.  Alternatively, bring your children down for the day and start off with a visit to Sea Life, followed by Shrek's Adventure pop in to Southbank Printmakers (we have chocolate) then hop accross to Bernie Spain Gardens for the Bottle Festoon.

A Lumiere London highlight is just around the corner from us on the Riverside Walkway.  The Wave, an installation of 40 triangular interactive gates that respond to your presence (and everybody elses!) allowing you to participate first hand in a piece of art.

Theresa Pateman 'Starry Night Thameside'

Whatever you decide to do, enjoy this Great Start to 2018, and if you include us in your plans, we will be delighted to see you!

Christmas at Gabriel's Wharf

A Festive Person dressed in a red boiler suit with a white beard will be roaming around Gabriel's Wharf on 
2nd December.  There will be a tree, live music and an all-pervading air of celebration. We will be adding to the general bonhomie with our own mulled wine and snackettes and some special treats for our smaller visitors.

By then we will have rehung the entire gallery and will be including some very reasonably priced small prints which make ideal presents as well as gift vouchers and highly original greetings cards courtesy of our artists.

It would be fantastic to see you there and we look forward to sharing our Christmas cheer with you..............

two upcoming exhibitions!

61 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7HT   
Tuesday 31st October – Saturday 11th November 2017
Private View Wednesday 1st November 6 – 8 pm

We welcome you to these two delightful exhibitions housed under the same roof - namely the Morley Gallery - an excellent venue indeed.  Here you can see the work of some of our most celebrated printmakers - Yoonjung Shim is showing two exciting images - her 'Crossword' and  an evocative picture of the Tate Modern. Peg Morris treats us to a glimpse of her 'Salt Marsh'.  Sue Ribbans brings out the evil 'Circe'.  Anyone who has done the four day stopover in Iceland will welcome another sight of Liz Whiteman-Smith's 'Geysir'.  Jennie Ing is showing her 'Barbican Towers' - simply described as a linocut, but I know my efforts do not yield this result!  Julie Sullock treats us to one of her liquid screenprints - 'Feather'.  Richard Peacock has interpreted what some might see as the grimness of concrete as a myriad of colour. cleverly named 'Concrete Poem' and last, but most definitely not least, comes Theresa Pateman's 'Neon Swimmer' - a depiction of glorious movement and colour incorporating the random and difficult technique of spitbite.

Since publishing this, Melanie Bellis has sent me two exciting images.  Her 'Oxo Tower' is part of the Mini Print exhibition and 'Two Cranes' is to be included in Print City.

A treat for all!  We hope you will join us at the Private View - or just drop in when you can.
