Friends of Printfest

As a Friend you help to keep the future of Printfest alive. We all need Friends. Printfest is run and managed by artists and art-lovers, 13% of our funding comes from trusts, foundations and local authorities, 35% comes from our exhibiting artists, just 6% comes from Friends of Printfest, the remaining finance comes from admissions, catalogue advertising and several smaller revenue streams such as the raffle. We are very grateful to all Friends who joined us this year.

The title of this print by Printmakers’ Printmaker Sally Adkins is ‘And so begins the simple mineral monologue of water‘, Sally says “I have used titles for this series of etchings and prints that are taken from the exquisite poetry of Alice Oswald. This is from ‘Nobody’.” The print is created using the etching printmaking method.
