Over the next year Belfast International Airport is hosting a series of exhibitions of original prints created by members of Seacourt: The Centre for Contemporary Printmaking. Commencing with 'Response', which presents images inspired by a collection of photographs documenting Native Americans from 1902, the venue will enable 4,000,000 visitors per year to experience original prints.
Robert Peters, Seacourt's Creative Director said, "This is a fantastic opportunity for our members to share their prints with a large audience. Seacourt has a strong record of exhibiting art in non gallery settings, but this expands our audience to undreamt of proportions. I would like to thank Belfast International Airport, particularly Human Resources Manager Jaclyn Coulter, for this support in bringing visual art to new audiences"
Following on from 'Response' a partnership project with Clotworthy House Arts Centre, Antrim 'Eden's Blueprint' will run to November. In January a new body of prints based on a theme suggested by Belfast International Airport will be launched.
