An exhibition of original prints by 233 artists from 30 countries opens its doors on Thursday 14th in Seacourt: The Centre for Contemporary Printmaking , Bangor at 7.00pm. The exhibition is the 2nd International Mini Print Biennial to be held at the world renowned artist resource and offers visitors a real insight into the art of printmaking across the globe.

Seacourt’s Creative Director, Robert Peters said, “We have had an outstanding response to our Mini Print Biennial this year. Participating artists have increased by almost 100 on our previous exhibition two years ago. We have received high quality etchings, lithographs and relief prints from skilled printmakers from many countries including a number from Iran for the first time. We would encourage everyone to take this opportunity to visit our gallery to experience this astounding collection of original prints”.

For this exhibition artists were asked to create an original print on a piece of 20cm x 20 cm paper exploring any theme and using any printmaking technique.  Original prints are made by hand, using processes that have a long history within art traditions. As part of this exhibition, Robert Peters will be demonstrating Salt Etching on Friday 15th April at 2.00. The exhibition continues to the 20th May.
