Kevis House - Wood Engravers' 80th Exhibition

Kevis House - Wood Engravers' 80th Exhibition


10.00am - 5.00pm

Do come and join us for this wood engraving bonanza - The SWE 80th Annual Exhibition - comprising 119 pictures which will be crammed from floor to ceiling into Kevis House Gallery. We look forward to sharing them with you, at the Opening on Saturday 11 November, between 10am - 5 pm, with drinks from 12 noon.

The show will run until 23 December, and we will be hosting a late opening on Saturday 2 December, to coincide with the Christmas Lights, when we will be open until 8pm.

Wood engraving prints are made by engraving the design in reverse on a block of end grain wood, traditionally boxwood. The block is then rolled with ink and printed onto paper. The cuts made in the wood therefore come out as white, and the rest is black. Wood engravers have been said to be “drawing with light”, with a white mark, rather than a black mark as in a picture made with a pencil, brush or pen.

For such detailed limited edition original prints, engraved and hand printed by the artists. With pieces starting from as little as £50, they are bought not only by collectors but also as gifts.

All the pictures can be seen on the gallery's website. If anything catches your eye then feel free to email us.
