The Cardiff Sessions Exhibition and Forum
Saturday 10 August 2013
10.30am-5.00pm: Exhibition by The Cardiff Sessions - Fine Art Printmaking Collective
From 3.00pm: Forum led by Professor David Ferry RE FRSA
Established in 2009, The Cardiff Sessions (Ian Wilkins, Christina Wrege, Michael Iveson) is an artist collective with backgrounds in Fine Art Printmaking. The collective’s aim is to investigate the aesthetics of collaborative mark-making and to place these printed works firmly within the realm of contemporary printmaking. The Cardiff Sessions modus operandi for a round of collaborative prints is as follows: lithographic transfer paper is made, then folded and sent between collaborating artists who contribute their drawn mark, and in turn, respond to each other’s drawings. The completed drawings are then transferred to a lithographic stone and printed as a mini edition by the collective members.
Members of the Cardiff Sessions will be working at The Rodd throughout the week preceding their exhibition, printing a new round of collaborative lithographs, which will feature alongside works taken from their wider portfolio. www.cardiffsessions.co.uk
In the afternoon Professor David Ferry of Cardiff School of Art & Design leads a Forum exploring fine art printmaking at the Sidney Nolan Trust. We hope that many of our regular (and occasional) printmakers will be able to attend and share their own experiences of printmaking at The Rodd. Admission free. Refreshments available. Please contact us to reserve a place for the Forum.
