HomeGrown (art)

There is a new exhibition at the Emma Mason Gallery entitled HomeGrown which is being staged to coincide with the Towner Gallery's Collective Observations.

HomeGrown is an exhibition of prints on the themes of myth, tradition and folklore of the British Isles and will include work from printmakers that the Gallery has not featured before, such as Alice Pattullo - a printmaker from London who graduated from Brighton University in 2010, Tom Frost - an illustrator and screenprinter who lives in Bristol, Johnny Hannah and Jonathan Gibbs. There will also be other folk items such felt Pearly King & Queen dolls by Sarah Young.

The Emma Mason Gallery specialises in original prints by British printmakers working from the post-war period until the present day. They have a huge variety of prints and so only a selection are on show at any one time. If you would like to see a particular theme or printmaker's work during your visit, I havebeen told it is advisable to call ahead ( 01323 727545 / ) so they can make sure the images are at hand! They also produce a range of unusual greetings cards illustrated with prints of local rural and seaside scenes.

Emma Mason Gallery, Sat 13th Oct to Sat 3rd Nov.
Open Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays, 10:00-17:00.
Free admission.
