CAMBRIDGE ORIGINAL PRINTMAKERS BIENNALE

39 artist showcasing their prints

Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale is an independently-run event promoting knowledge and understanding of hand-pulled printmaking and its technical variables and complexities to a wider audience. At the inaugural launch in 2014 the Biennial had nearly 4,000 visitors in ten days, which speaks for the general interest in the art of printmaking. In this year’s edition, 39 externally selected Printmakers who specialise in hand-pulled original prints will be exhibiting.   

The founders of Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale are Jo Tunmer, Anthony Hopkinson and Susan Jones. The three Printmakers share a passion for Printmaking and the desire to create an event showcasing the best work of Cambridgeshire-based Printmakers. They are also determined to bring together areas of the community that have never encountered printmaking before.  

Printmaking is an exciting art form that continues to increase in popularity. Cambridge is proud to house three internationally acclaimed Print Houses within the city: St Barnabas Press, Kip Gresham and The Print Studio and The Curwen Print Study Centre along with the MA Printmaking students from Anglia Ruskin University will also be exhibiting. During the exhibition there will also be talks and demonstrations taking place and are available too. The wider audience can learn about bookbinding and print techniques such as etching, lithography, mezzotints and wood engraving.

The exhibition will take place at the historic Pitt Building, Trumpington St, Cambridge. It will be open for visitors from 22 September until 28 September 2016. Doors open at 10.30am each day and close at 5pm.
