Join us for Edinburgh Printmakers’ 50-year anniversary celebration exhibition, From Paper To Gold. At a significant milestone in the timeline of Scotland’s first open-access print studio, the exhibition and accompanying portfolio bear testament to the talent, skills and printmaking experience within the community of artists that has grown with the organisation. To celebrate 50 years of printmaking excellence, Edinburgh Printmakers has invited 50 artists to each produce an anniversary print to be included in an astonishing commemorative portfolio of exemplary contemporary Scottish printmaking. Artists have been invited to participate based on the quality of their practice and contributions to Edinburgh Printmakers studio throughout the years.
To accompany the show, there will be gallery tours at 1pm and 3pm.
In addition to this, there will be very special studio demonstrations by Mhairi Braden and Matthew Carey Simos at 2pm and 4pm.
As well as gaining an exclusive behind–the-scenes look at the print studio, which is not normally open to the public, exhibiting artists in From Paper To Gold will be on hand to demonstrate the processes they used in the production of their prints, and to discuss their arts practice.
Throughout the day there will also be very special promotions in Edinburgh Printmakers’ shop, the perfect venue to pick up unique and locally produced gifts for loved ones – or to treat yourself!
