Stepney Bank, Newcastle upon Tyne
Running until March 11
Northern Footprints is the annual exhibition in celebration of a year of printmaking by over forty of Northern Print’s studio artists. This year marks the 10th edition of the diverse show.
For this exhibition there are no constraints in terms of theme or media so the work is very eclectic and showcases a wide range of printmaking techniques, styles and content. The only stipulation for entry is that all submissions must measure 12 inches square – or one square foot, hence the exhibition name.
This is an excellent opportunity to see a snapshot of current practice within Northern Print’s studio and serves as a good introduction to the world of original prints for those new to the art form and those seeking to add to their creative skills by taking one of their courses.
All works will be available to purchase and with spring just around the corner it’s a perfect time to select a special piece – with over 40 original prints to choose from.
Pieces priced at £100 and over can be bought using the interest-free Arts Council England Own Art scheme which enables you to make your purchase over ten affordable monthly instalments.
