In the spirit of pressing ahead after lockdown, nine members of the lively printmaking group at Salcombe Art Club present an exhibition of recent work. Collagraphs, monoprints, lino cuts, wood cuts, etchings, monotypes and drypoints are all displayed - techniques and images as diverse as the artists, but all sharing the universal principle of transferring an image to paper from a prepared plate to create an original work of art. Printmaking is a complex craft, with unpredictable results, which is all part of the appeal for artists with a taste for risk and invention. Last year some of the aritsts collaborated on a delightful handmade book project, using linocuts to depict a colourful fruit salad.
