The Derby Print Open is an exhibition open to all, showcasing contemporary printmaking from artists based in the UK. A total of 82 printmakers submitted their work for last year's event and over 200 prints were exhibited.
Due to the worldwide pandemic this exhibition will now feature online and you can view all the work from the comfort of your own home. Work on exhibition is for sale and you can rest assured knowing that your purchase is supporting an independent printmaker during this very challenging time.
Awards have also been generously donated by businesses within the cultural and creative industries such as exhibition and residency opportunities, art materials and creative workshops; with the award winners being listed online too.
Anna Johnson, Creative Director of Green Door Printmaking Studio commented, “We are overwhelmed with the positive response to this year’s Derby Print Open. The move to host the exhibition virtually during this turbulent time will enable everyone’s hard work and efforts to not be in vain and gives our printmakers a platform to showcase their work straight into homes around the world. We also wish to thank our award givers for their support and we hope that everyone enjoys all the amazing work on show!”
