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.
Awards which have been generously donated by businesses within the cultural and creative industries such as exhibition and residency opportunities, art materials and creative workshops will be presented during the launch evening at Banks Mill in early June.
Anna Johnson, Creative Director of Green Door Printmaking Studio commented, “We were delighted by the quality and quantity of submissions that we received for our second Derby Print Open last year. We also wish to thank our award givers for their support and we hope that everyone in Derby enjoys all the work exhibited throughout June.”
