Postcards from the UK: Martha’s return for “Glimpse”

During the school year the technicians encouraged us to hang our works in progress in the hall outside the print rooms. This allowed the other art students; design, fashion and photography to see what we were doing.

I am returning to the University of Central Lancashire for three weeks.  The Artists Access to Art Colleges (AA2A) group of three other printmakers that I worked with during the last school year will have a two week show titled ‘Glimpse’ at the PR1 Gallery at the university.

I will also be working on Tracy Hill’s and my show, ‘Field of Vision’ which will be at Washington Printmakers Gallery in December.  Tracy is the senior printmaking technician at UCLan and we’ve been collaborating for a year on a body of work.  Two printmakers, 10 walks, two countries.  We’ll do our fith and final walk in Lancashire during my visit.  Tracy was in DC for a nine day residency at Pyramid Atlantic in April.  We did our five US walks at that time.  ‘Field of Vision’ will go to the Harris Museum in Preston, UK in February, 2012.
