Society of Wood Engravers Annual Exhibition

On Friday I visited the Bankside Gallery in London and considered the Once-a-year Exhibition of the Modern society of Wooden Engravers

The exhibition opened on 7th February and proceeds to 26th February and I’d pretty a lot suggest this exhibition to any individual interested in fantastic artwork printmaking

  • There are a ton of high high quality artworks in this exhibition
  • Extra importantly quite a few of them are pretty economical (i.e. less than £500 – with some a lot less than £100)

The Modern society of Wood Engravers was launched in 1920 by artists which include Eric Gill, Gwen Raverat, Robert Gibblings, Philip Hagreen and Lucien Pissarro. A break throughout the war several years and then again in the 1970s meant that their annual exhibition ceased for a time considering the fact that their revival in 1984, they have constructed a track record for excellence, attracting exhibitors and collectors from around the globe

Watch of one particular corner of the exhibition

It commences with illustrations or photos of the prizewinners adopted by gallery views of the wooden engravings in the exhibition.

See of some of the artworks in the exhibition – indicating the variation in dimensions

I’m relatively puzzled by wherever I can obtain a listing of the prizewinners on what seems to be the two sites of the Culture of Wood Engravers

SWA Attribute Artist 2023: Angie Lewin

In 2006 I was elected to The Royal Modern society of Painter Printmakers and in 2008 to The Society of Wood Engravers. In 2010 I was elected to The Artwork Personnel Guild. In 2016 I was elected to The Royal Watercolour Society.

What’s rather odd is that the artworks are not all wooden engravings.
