Location: The Willis Museum, Basingstoke
Acclaimed printmaker Angie Lewin has become a curator, creating an exhibition for Hampshire Cultural Trust which showcases works which have inspired and influenced her.
Ceramics by Eric Ravilious and Paul Scott, wallpapers by Edward Bawden, prints by Gertrude Hermes and Monica Poole, textiles by Ashley Havinden and woven willow work by Lizzie Farey are currently being shown alongside a selection of her limited edition prints. Loans have come from locations such as Tate, V&A, Towner Art Gallery and a number of private collections – including Angie’s own.
Having originally opened in March 2017 at The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre, the exhibition now travels to the Sainsbury Gallery, The Willis Museum, Basingstoke (6 May – 19 July 2017) and St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Lymington (16 Sept – 11th Nov 2017).
The exhibition includes work selected by Angie from a wide range of disciplines and periods which leads the visitor through the inspirations and affinities which have influenced her journey as a printmaker and designer. A very personal selection, A Printmaker’s Journey is very much Angie reflecting on her own work and career as she shares with visitors the works and artists she has looked to for inspiration or personally loves.
More than sixty paintings, textiles, prints, posters and ceramics by around twenty five artists and designers are displayed alongside work from various stages of Angie’s career.
