16 September – 26 October 2019
West Yorkshire Print Workshop is delighted to be showing a selection of works by members of Yorkshire Sculptors Group, coinciding with the Yorkshire Sculpture International (22 June – 29 September).
Five artists from YSG have been selected, including: Garry Barker, Sally Barker, Victoria Ferrand Scott, Carole Griffiths and Terence Hammill. The exhibition opens up a conversation around sculpture and printmaking – a dialogue between object and image – and showcases several art works specially made for the show.
YSG was set up in 1985 with the intention of bringing together sculptors living and working in the Yorkshire region to promote their work through exhibitions and discussions. They have shown their work in many venues throughout Yorkshire and beyond – from York Minster, the cathedrals of Ripon and Durham, the Bowes Museum, to many public and private galleries in London and across the UK.
This exhibition at WYPW will present a unique display of works engaging with traditional sculptural materials (such as wood and clay) and traditional printmaking techniques (such as etching and linocut) alongside hybrid art works which incorporate a combination of two- and three-dimensional approaches.
Everyone is invited to join the artists for a reception on Tuesday 17th September, 6-8pm.
