National Open Print Exhibition

In spring this year I saw an advert to submit artwork for the National Open Print Exhibition at Bankside Gallery in London and thought: "Why not?". So I decided to send them 6 images of my handmade prints, including my very first artists' book which I wrote about in one of my previous posts. You can understand how excited I was when I heard my book was accepted to be exhibited!

Last Tuesday I met my mum in London who came over from The Netherlands just to be at the preview. It was such an amazing experience and lovely to have shared this with her!

The preview was very well attended. We met a few other artists and the prize winners were announced (unfortunately I wasn't one of them).

As it was so busy it was quite difficult to take a good look at all this beautiful artwork so the next day we came back.

Quieter times the day after!

I especially admired the following pieces:
