Milton Keynes Printmakers are here!

We are delighted to be hosting the MKPrintmakers who have hung s fantastic selection of their work on our wall at the Southbank Printmakers gallery in Gabriel's Wharf.  

Iain Hodgkinson's  enigmatically named 'Birds Nests is an excellent example of how effective a winter scene can be in black and white.

Deborah Hopson-Wolpe displays her "Thames Barrier" (above) and her vivacious "Check Tablecloth" (below)
"After the Storm"  and "In the Round" By Lindsay Graham seem to convey, not only the fallen tree, uprooted and flung about, but also the crackling ferocity of the storm itself and the wildness of the wind.

"In the Round" Lindsay Graham

I love June Meadow's "At Kirby Hall" with its amalgamation of bird-life and architecture.

Lynne Thirkell's "Indian Summer" is reminiscent of those hot September days with its burning sun and orange hues and her "Shadow Dance" is joyous.

Finally an image that we, in the city, rarely see - "Power Lines"  A drypoint by Di Oliver.  For me this has a slightly nostalgic feel.  It is not something that is generally portrayed in such detail and I find Di's treatment of the subject resonates with me as it will with you.

These images can be seen until 4th May.  In their actual sizes, individually inked on heavy archival paper, to enjoy them at their fullest, please do visit us at the Gallery
