New miniprint exhibition at Rufford

ART lovers are invited to Rufford Craft Centre close to Ollerton where there will be a touring exhibition entitled Smallprint:big impression.

The exhibition is a showcase of contemporary fine art printmaking and includes artists from the UK and from the US and New Zealand.

The exhibition, organised by Leicester Print Workshop, will run from now until 29th August. There will be a variety of printmaking techniques on display, including etching, lithography and relief work as digital prints.

The over-riding theme of the exhibition is that all the works are in a small scale and no image is larger than 100cm squared.

The curators of the exhibition hope that by showcasing smaller prints, they will be able to offer a greater range of works and enable visitors to buy them at a more affordable price.
