National Eistedfodd 2011

SPW Members were offered the opportunity to display work at the Eistedfodd through a project run by the Original Print Place, Cardiff and funded by the Arts Council of Wales.

The project set out to give printmakers in Wales an exposure to the many thousands of visitors the Eistedfodd enjoys every year. The stand looked really good. Check out the link below to see some of the images



The Oriel Ceri Richards Gallery at the Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea University, offered Swansea Print Workshop the opportunity to curate an exhibition which was on show for three weeks in August 2011.

This was an excellent opportunity to showcase the work of selected artists in this popular and prestigious gallery. After a selection process the following artists were chosen:

David Barron   Bill Chambers   Alan Figg

Sarah Hopkins   Robert Macdonald     Judith Stroud

The work of Paul Peter Piech will also form a part of the exhibition.

The exhibition was shown from August 6th - 26th 2011 with the Private View on Friday 5th August.

Press release:

"The wonderful variety of techniques used by artist/printmakers will be on display at the Taliesin Art Centre in August when six leading printmakers from Swansea’s renowned Print Workshop hold an exhibition of their recent work. It will also be an opportunity to see some of the linocuts produced by the late Paul Peter Piech, an American who came to live in Wales and who focused in his printmaking on issues of Welsh political and historical identity. The six living artists exhibiting are David Barron, Bill Chambers, Alan Figg, Sarah Hopkins, Robert Macdonald and Judith Stroud, all members of the Swansea Print Workshop which in recent years has become a centre for artistic innovation and adventurous outreach projects. Together their work encompasses almost all the main printmaking methods from the most traditional etchings and aquatints on copper to silk-screens employing the very latest digital manipulation."

Printers Stint: Rhondda Heritage Park

A recent exhibition called Printers Stint curated by Jan Pennell highlighted the excellent gallery at the Rhondda Heritage Centre.

Alan Atkins, Alan Bateman, William Brown, Nigel Bowles, Georgina Brownlow, Sheila Clark, Michael Goode, Valerie Ganz, Jackie Ford, Lesley Lillywhite, Nina Morgan & Alison Porter.

Gallery: Rhondda Heritage Centre



Jan would be interested in a Rhondda based project in print making and would collaborate on putting a project together. If anyone is interested in pursuing this it could be the basis of a small funding bid using the centre / area to develop some prints with a follow up exhibition / project work in the local community.
