THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS IN YORKSHIRE CURATED BY NORMAN ACKROYD CBE RA
6th September - 1st November
An exhibition of original prints selected from this year’s Summer Exhibition by Norman Ackroyd CBE RA.
A unique exhibition that intents on bringing the best of UK print practice to the heart of Yorkshire.
“The Print Room at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition comprehensively covers the huge variety of recent prints produced in every printing medium in the UK.
The Gallery asked me to curate an exhibition selected from this year’s 246th Summer Exhibition. In it I have tried to reflect the diversity and energy existing throughout the UK across all print media, traditional and new.
The new upstairs gallery at Zillah Bell in Thirsk has given me the opportunity to bring some of the best prints produced in the UK in the past year to the heart of Yorkshire.”
Norman Ackroyd CBE RA
“Original printmaking is the most democratic of art forms, putting work by major artists within range of the more modest budget. We are extremely flattered to have so much outstanding work by major contemporary artists from all over the UK.”
John Bell, Zillah Bell Gallery Owner
“It’s fantastic to see work by some of the greatest printmakers to come out of Northern England and Scotland return once again to show their accomplishments in the north.”
