Exhibitions in 2020

**** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***

We are so sad to say that the studio and gallery is now closed to the public and we are not running workshops, including guest workshops, for the foreseeable future because of the COVID-19 coronavirus and the current lockdown.

We are continuing to design and print behind closed doors so please email hello@smallprintcompany.com to discuss your ideas. Our cards, gifts and books are also available to buy online, or by the ‘click and collect’ service and your support in these very difficult times is hugely appreciated.

Please follow us on social media for up-to-date information and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the studio in healthier times.


 

Alongside a series of co-ordinated events and exhibitions, the studio is showcasing work made in the studio by both The Smallprint Co, people who take part in our workshops and collaborations with other artists and practitioners.

To reflect this the Gallery Space has become the Studio Gallery. Please visit, and please do enjoy!

 


Modern Victorians: Recording and Classifying
6 March – 9 May

Winged by Clive Wheeler
Is my own personal collection of winged insects, but as a modern Victorian I have avoided the Formaldehyde. Starting with some experiments in watercolour painting to investigate shapes and colours I went on to create new photogram insects using colour photographic paper in the darkroom at Photo Parlour.

A Dissection of the High Street by David J Edge
Is my attempt to separate out the layers of the high street today, to show that there is more to it than moribund commercial enterprises. I have tried to abstract the layers using separations and different processes.
 
Collecting at the Edges by Kester Savage
This body of work, which is ongoing, is site specific and has come about through the simple act of collecting. It celebrates no sprawling wilderness, no national park; just some fields and scrubby woodlands with a brook running through it. It is a quiet reflection on the overlooked plants, sidelined to pockets of urban wilderness where they sustain the biodiversity that is so rapidly diminishing.
