This rich and varied exhibition celebrates the art of printmaking as an integral part of contemporary Scottish visual arts and the opening of Glasgow Print Studio's new gallery.
A précis of the fabulous work produced at Glasgow Print Studio over three decades, this exhibition is also the culmination of the initial stages of a larger archive project. Two years of cataloguing and conserving a treasure trove of art works, printing blocks and plates, associated drawings and related objects has ensured the preservation of the largest and most significant collection of printmaking in Scotland from the 1970's to present day. It will provide a fabulous resource for learning and research.
Bringing together work from the archive by a number of highly-acclaimed international contemporary artists alongside major figures already firmly placed in the canon of Scottish art, this exhibition will feature over 100 works by many of Scotland's leading artists including John Bellany, Elizabeth Blackadder, Alasdair Gray, Barbara Rae, Christine Borland, Hanneline Visnes, Richard Wright and Martin Boyce. New Glasgow Boys Adrian Wiszniewski, Ken Currie, Peter Howson and Steven Campbell are also well represented in the collection.
The Past Impressions project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Glasgow Print Studio's archive will be accessible to the public from September 2009.
