Art in Relief

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

An exhibition of woodcut and linocut prints from the University collections
Tower Foyer Gallery, University of Dundee
Now open and showing until 25th June
Monday to Friday (9.30am to 7pm) Saturday (1pm to 5pm)

Relief printing is a traditional form of printmaking in which the raised areas of the print surface are inked and printed. Its two most common forms are woodcut and linocut prints, each of which gives a very distinctive and bold graphic appearance, allowing for some truly striking imagery. 

This new exhibition features a selection of relief prints from the University’s extensive print collections. It includes works by notable masters of the form such as Alison McKenzie and Willie Rodger, as well as numerous former students of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design.

The exhibition has been created to accompany next month’s Print Festival Scotland. We hope you can make it along to see it!
