Dirty Plates

3rd Year Printmaking in the LSG
4th-14th August

While it is easy for many printmakers to fall into a solitary practice after leaving NAS, our class was lucky enough to have developed into a kind of family group. This support base has been inspirational. It is important to share the fruits of our labour and express the importance of maintaining active contact with other artists - especially in a school that takes such pride in its sense of artistic community.
We have carried this value into our practice by creating editions for exchange portfolios within our class, and also tried to reach out to you through our opening night with a presentation of home baked goods. For us, food and printmaking have equal nutritional value. We are always hungry for more...whether for artistic fulfilment, or just another big piece of cake. So, this exhibition is a celebration - a feast for all starving (and not so starving) artists, and anyone else with a stomach and aspirations.
