Friends of Printfest


That’s what Friends are for…

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, 22% of our funding comes from trusts, foundations and local authorities, 34% comes from our exhibiting artists, the remaining 44% comes from admissions, catalogue advertising and several smaller revenue streams such as the raffle and Friends. We are very grateful to all Friends who joined us this year.

The title of this print by Printmakers’ Printmaker Gail Mason is ‘Time Travels’, oil monotype.
