‘The Post-War Printmakers’: An exhibition and sale of original prints and mid-century ceramics’ – Saturday 25th November – Sunday 3rd December

Following the success of ‘John Piper at Elmslie House‘ earlier this year, in November we are delighted to once again be collaborating with Dr Richard Turkington to bring you a collection of Post-War Prints – including these:







Kentish-Village-with-Oast-Houses                                   Mine

Robert Tavener                                                                      Heinz Fleischer

Led by a desire to popularise art and by technical improvements, the 1950s saw a dramatic revival in printmaking by a new generation of artists keen to capture everyday scenes in new forms, as well as reworking more traditional subjects such as architecture and landscape.

A collection of prints from across Europe has been combined with original ceramics to offer a mid-century perspective on art and design. Artists represented include Edwin La Dell, David Gentleman, Helena Markson, Henry Moore and John Piper.

The exhibition will be opening on Saturday 25th November from 3.00pm – 7.30pm, following a lunchtime recital from the Arioso Wind Quartet.

Opening times will then be:

Weekends: 10.30 – 4.30pm on Sunday 26th November, Saturday 2nd December and Sunday 3rd December

and afternoons only (2.30pm – 5.00pm) throughout the week (November 27th – November 30th) with late opening on Friday 1st December until 8pm.

The exhibition may be opened at other times by arrangement.

A café will be open offering light refreshments.
