Hung across Galleries 1 & 2, Journey is the third annual Members' Show to take place at Castle Mills. This year we are thrilled that the show has grown to include 78 participating artists and 102 works.
Hung across Galleries 1 & 2 at Edinburgh Printmakers, ‘Journey’ celebrates the ‘Journey’ of Edinburgh Printmakers' Workshop itself. Starting as a small collective of imaginative artists in 1967, it has flourished into a group of over 200 members from Edinburgh and across the world. Edinburgh Printmakers began as a small studio on Victoria Street, however soon outgrew the space, and has since inhabited buildings across Edinburgh. In 1975 the organisation moved to Market Street, in 1984 to Union Street, and since 2019, it has been based at Castle Mills in Fountainbridge. The theme for the third annual members’ show at Castle Mills has been interpreted in many ways: including landscapes, excerpts of travels, and a morning commute. It also charts milestones of life and personal experiences, such as growing up or discovering one's self-identity. In addition, the exhibition reflects ‘Journeys’ within printmaking itself through exploring new processes or materials. The work on display demonstrates a range of print mediums on paper, animation, and three-dimensional works.
