Work by Arthur Penn

Apple Tree Moon

Prints by Arthur Penn

Exhibited from Saturday 30 June - Sunday 29 July, 2018

Arthur Penn lives near the town of Nailsworth in the Cotswolds with his wife Kate and Louis the Labrador. His studio has a door which opens onto their garden, which is where he finds much of his inspiration. He has always explored a range of printmaking processes, including etching and collagraph, but most recently has been making a series of lino block relief prints. He uses handmade Japanese paper and slowly hand prints his designs using a spoon to burnish the paper. His ideas are drawn from house and garden, simple everyday plants and familiar objects. Above all he is inspired by the transient beauty of nature, and details such as the way things grow, the arabesque of the natural forms, the direction tendrils spiral, leaves curl and ferns unfurl.

Arthur will be ‘in residence’ on Sundays 8, 22 and 29 July between 2pm and 4pm. He’ll be running a workshop for adults on 15 July and drop in printmaking activities for children on 25 July. Do come and meet him then.
