Last Chance to see The National Original Print Exhibition at Bankside Gallery
There's only a few days left to see the works selected for this year's National Original Print Exhibition, an international open submission exhibition established by the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers which celebrates the best in all types of contemporary printmaking. You've got until the 29th of Sept!
This year's selectors were Eileen Cooper OBE RA Hon RE (artist), Holly Johnson (artist & musician who made the Silver Sailor print above) and Prof Peter Lloyd (artist and Head of School of Art, Solent University), along with RE President David Ferry and RE Vice President, Michelle Griffiths.

Over 2,000 print makers applied to be in this show and only 200 got in. My personal favourite was this etching of Victoria Station by John Duffin.
The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers has its home at Bankside Gallery, which is next to Tate Modern, along with the Royal Watercolour Society. Full address: Bankside Gallery, Thames Riverside 48 Hopton Street London SE1 9JH
