Reveal is a group of contemporary Printmakers from the North West of England working out of Salford’s prestigious Hot Bed Press. They have exhibited at a number of venues over the last two years including the Hepworth Print Fair, RK Burt Gallery in London and Kosmonaut in Manchester. The members come from a diverse range of backgrounds involving both art and science, and draw inspiration from a broad choice of subject matter, both emotional and physical, as well as each from each other.
Their work varies from imaginative figurative works including views of rural and industrial landscapes, pictures of people and still life, through to vivid abstracts. The different techniques used, including etch, aquatint, screen print, linocut and mono-print, demonstrate how texture, colour and line can be used to create dramatically different effects and provide an insight into an art-form that challenges traditional art.
Reveal members are: Paulette Bansal, Kate Downes, Lesley Johnson, Helen Lacey, Jayne Pellington, Dawn Prescott, Alison Sandford, Alison Scott, Bridget Schilizzi, Yvonne Walters.
Opening event Thursday 3 August 2017 5.30pm – 7pm. Free. Open to all.
