Aberystwyth Printmakers

21 March to 25 April

 

Aberystwyth Printmakers was set up in May 2004, when a group of artists – Paul Croft, Judy Macklin and Edwina Ellis from the School of Art – came together with artists Judy and Robert Carpenter and Stuart Evans from Ceredigion Museum. The group were interested in setting up an artist’s association that would help to promote and raise the profile of Printmaking in West Wales and this it has done by organising regular talks, lectures, demonstrations and exhibitions of their work and through the provision of printmaking workshop facilities.

During the last ten years the group has maintained a healthy membership of around 60 members (currently it is 84), many of whom are established artists, students, amateurs, professionals and members of the public who are just interested in printmaking.

Until 2013 the group had a small studio that provided limited facilities for etching and relief printing at Gorwelion on Llanbadarn Road. When, in May of this year, the group were asked to vacate these premises, the opportunity to relocate with Celf Ceredigion Art at the Gas Gallery provided the group with a larger and more substantial space. As a consequence, the group is now able to offer facilities for etching, relief printing (linocut / woodcut and wood engraving), stone and plate lithography and screen-printing.
