The Printed Line
More information

An Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition

The Printed Line exhibition showcases the work of nearly 60 artists who have used a variety of printmaking techniques to exploit the potential of the printed line, from the thick and velvety line of drypoint and the heavy cross-hatching of etching to delicate wood engraving and boldly coloured screenprints. The use of colour will be explored in screenprints by Bridget Riley and Kenneth Martin, as well as Simon Patterson’s witty lithograph, which reworks the lines of the London Tube map.

All the prints in this exhibition are from the Arts Council Collection, which is the largest loan collection of modern and contemporary British art and include fine examples of work by all of this country’s most prominent artists.
