Throughout February GPS will be celebrating the technique of woodcut printmaking. One of the oldest and basic methods of making a print, wood cut printmaking is based on the principle of cutting away part of the surface of a block so that the image area to be printed stands out in relief to form a printing surface. Many members of Glasgow Print Studio's open access printmaker's workshop use woodcut printmaking either as a primary method of producing images or by combining it with other techniques and media. This exhibition celebrates the simplicity and vibrancy of the woodcut from the bold and dramatic work by Peter Howson and Adrian Wiszniewski to more subtle and intricate works of artists such as Norman Sutton Hibbert.
