Cutting a fine line

Friday 29th April 10:00am – Sunday 8th May 2022 4:00pm

God’s House Tower, Town Quay Road, Southampton, SO14 2NY

In celebration of their 10th Anniversary, Cowprint invites you to explore the exciting diversity of modern printmaking through the varied work of twenty local artists.

All the work on display has been printed by hand, with our artists taking advantage of the rich variety of different printmaking techniques to express their ideas, some of which will be demonstrated during the exhibition. Within this exhibition you will find examples of relief methods, such as woodcut, wood engraving and linocut, intaglio methods such as etching, mezzotint, solar plate and collagraph and finally planographic methods such as monoprint and screenprint.

Cowprint (derived from the location where the group was first formed at the Old Cattle Market, near Itchen Bridge, Southampton) is a small group of Artist Printmakers formed in 2012.

Since then, the group has grown to 30 members, collaborated on exciting printmaking projects, exhibitions and international exchanges as well as meeting regularly to sketch, print, make, swap and discuss ideas and methods.

This exhibition at Southampton City Art Gallery celebrated their 10th anniversary and showcases the groups artists and the many different printing and making techniques they have to offer.
