A FREE printmaking exhibition can be enjoyed in Morcombelake from Friday, August 23 to Monday, August 26.

The In Print art exhibition by Morcombelake Art Group features original printmaking made by members of the group, who spend time sketching together. Many of their ideas come from these sessions.

In the In Print exhibition, apart from lino cuts, visitors will see dry point etchings, collagraphs and mono-prints. There will be a display explaining all the printmaking making methods and members will be on hand to answer questions.

The subject matter varies from local scenes, figures, abstracts, flower studies and still lives. Many visitors will be pleased to see the work of Elizabeth Fortescue.

Elizabeth, who died recently, was an inspirational, much loved member of the group and her family is pleased that her work has been included in the exhibition. Unframed work will be for sale as well as artists’ cards.
