Patrons at Printfest play a special role through their life experiences that support Printfest in untold ways. We are immensely grateful to them.
In 2020 Printfest welcomed Ceri Hutton as our fourth Patron. Ceri’s role as a key member of Ulverston, her professional outlook on humankind, her fabulous sense of fun and her love of the arts on both a personal level and for social wellbeing are hugely welcomed.
In 2019 Printfest welcomed Mychael Barratt as our third Patron. Mychael has been President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, he has curated many international exhibitions and was responsible for launching two annual open submission print exhibitions held at Bankside Gallery – the National Original Print Exhibition and The Masters.
In 2018 Printfest welcomed fellow printmaker Alan Stones as our second Patron. Alan brings a wealth of experience in printmaking and exhibited at the very first Printfest in 2001. Alan is playing an active role with the Printfest Team and will be part of the selection committee in January for Printfest 2019.
