Local Artist, Sandy Sykes, is curating this year's Masters Relief Exhibition, which is dedicated to relief printmaking. The Masters is a series of technique-specific exhibitions established by the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Any work using a relief printmaking technique as the primary medium is eligble. This includes woodcut, linocut, wood engraving, relief etching and block press. An exhibition of the selected works will be shown at Bankside Gallery from 13-24 November 2019. Details of how to enter are shown on the competition flyer. It would be great to have some work submitted by community members.
