Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Painting & Printing, 1990-2004 at Glasgow Print Studio examines for the first time the relationship between these two distinct areas of her practice by showing related paintings, prints and overpainted prints together. While foremost a painter, Barns-Graham (1912-2004) made prints throughout her working life, trying many different methods such as etching, linocut, lithography and screenprinting. Printmaking became central to her practice, particularly in the last ten years of her career, during which she produced a significant number of screenprints with the Midlothian-based printers Graal Press. Naomi Brown of Glasgow Print Studio says, ‘Working alongside master printmakers, Barns-Graham was a true pioneer of technical innovations in printmaking. She experimented with a variety of new techniques and materials that allowed her to create prints with intensity of colour and precision of design.’

Admission is free.
