A celebration of printmaking at The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum


Dates: Saturday 18 February and runs until 14 May.

The Printed Line, an exhibition featuring work by nearly 50 of some of the most celebrated artists of the 20th and 21st centuries will be the highlight of Print, a new season opening at The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum this month (February).

Work by artists including Hockney, Matisse, Picasso, Yinka Shonibare, Whistler and Rachel Whiteread will be presented in the Arts Council Collection exhibition The Printed Line as part of Print: celebrating the art of printmaking at The Wilson. The Printed Line opens on the second floor gallery on Saturday 18 February and runs until 14 May.

This Arts Council Collection exhibition explores how artists have used printmaking techniques to exploit the potential of the printed line since the beginning of the 20th century. The exhibition shows a variety of techniques from the thick velvety line of drypoint and the heavy cross-hatching of etching to delicate wood engraving and boldly coloured screenprints and lithographs.

Arts Council Collection is managed by Southbank Centre on behalf of Arts Council England.

Farwa Moledina

Pattern Repeat

An exhibition by Farwa Moledina, a contemporary artist who takes imagery from art history, architecture and culture and creates intricate repeated patterns and installations in textile and paper that reframe familiar stories and histories.  These reoccurring motifs reflect themes of culture, family and faith.

The Wilson’s Pattern Repeat exhibition features a new motif by the artist made from images of objects in the Wilson collection.  This unique design takes inspiration from the Islamic eight point star and adopts principles of Islamic design including recurrence, symmetry and abstraction.

Moledina presents historic works from the collection alongside her own, and highlights from The Wilson Print collection including works by Rembrandt, Turner and a selection of influential women printmakers.

The Print season takes The Wilson out into the town with a colourful artists’ trail running from the iconic red telephone boxes on The Promenade, through stepping stones leading into the museum, and through the galleries in a tour of works by the artist.
