02/07/2018 to 25/08/2018 EXHIBITION AND SALE OF HANDMADE ORIGINAL PRINTS - AT THE RBH

A wide variety of printmaking techniques, both traditional and more contemporary, have been used in these HANDMADE ORIGINAL PRINTS by artist-printmakers belonging to PRINT AT THE PARK. The works are as varied as the interests of the artists themselves, both in style and subject matter, ranging from urban and rural landscapes, the human figure and other living creatures, plant life and more abstract compositions. Many have distinctly 'summery' qualities. There are over 40 works. Prices range from £45 to £150, remarkably low for work of such quality. The more that are sold; the more widespread the benefits: as 25% of all sale proceeds are contributed to the hospital's Voluntary Services.

08/08/2018 to 12/08/2018 STREETSCAPES - PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION

All the images in this exhibition have been taken within cities and towns. They are contemporary records of urban life, but they are also testament to mankind’s ingenuity in adapting to new and challenging environments. These photographs capture the challenges we face on a daily basis, as well as the lifestyle choices and aesthetic stimulation arising from high population density and cultural diversity. Each of our photographers has emphasised beautiful elements to capture and hold our attention, particularly when the subject material is challenging. STREETSCAPES is a touring photographic exhibition created and supported by The Photographic Angle.
