Iron Press Printmaking Exhibition at The Dukes


Work by artists from Lancaster’s new Iron Press Printmaking Studio will be on exhibition in The Dukes gallery from next week.

The exhibition, which runs until 5th June 2016, is the first by IPP, a fine art printmaking facility which opened at The Storey in September.

IPP has open access to anyone interested in print and printmaking techniques including etching, drypoint, collagraph, carborundum, mono-printing, linocutting, woodcutting and wood engraving.

IPP Director, Iain Sloan said: “I set this up because Lancaster, as far as I am aware, has never had a printmaking facility like this that provides open access to the public.”

Anyone interested in printmaking can take inspiration from the exhibition which will feature the work of around 35 people from experienced printmakers and professional artists to complete beginners.

A wide selection of prints in a range of techniques, which have all been produced since the autumn, will be on display.

• The Iron Press Printmaking exhibition can be viewed in the gallery during normal Dukes opening hours. If you are making a special trip to see it, call the Box Office as sometimes the gallery is used for other activities. Please note that The Dukes is closed on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May. For more information, ring the Box Office on 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org
