University artists are making a big impression with a printmaking exhibition.

Staff at the University of Central Lancashire collaborated with 10 ten internationally-respected printmakers to showcase a range of techniques at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston until April 27.

Processes used to make the artworks on display include woodcuts, lithography, etching, screen printing and digital imaging.

Pete Clarke, Tracy Hill and Magda Stawarska-Beavan led the Impressit project. They will each give a free talk on Wednesday March 6, Tuesday March 26 and Monday April 8 at the museum.

There will also be a guided tour, open to all, featuring a British Sign Language interpreter and lip speaker, on March 16.

A Harris spokesman said: “The exhibition explores both traditional printmaking processes as well as works which challenge and redefine the ideas of printmaking and installation of paper works.

“Having developed a significant reputation for printmaking in recent years, UCLan were the natural choice to curate this exhibition for the Harris.”
