Exhibition: The Society of Wood Engravers

Location: 44AD Art Gallery, Bath

Date: Until 5th November 2016

Details: The Society of Wood Engravers opens its 79th Annual Exhibition in Bath at 44AD, with an entirely new selection of relief prints.

Over one hundred wood engravings, woodcuts and linocuts from the UK and around the world reveal the wide range of effects and interpretations this art form is capable of. Whether traditional or experimental in approach, these prints all have one thing in common; an astonishing level of virtuosity and intensity distilled into exquisitely rendered images.

The SWE Annual is always stringently selected, choosing only the best from a large open submission, but while standards are always high, prices can be surprisingly modest.

Wood engraving is the original “affordable art”, and with prices starting from £50 for a limited edition print there is something here for every taste and budget, bringing the chance of owning a piece of original art enticingly close!
