DSCF9622

Marie-Louise has received the good news that Fragment II has been accepted in The Masters; a series of annual exhibitions run by the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. This year, the print method to be examined is intaglio* and the exhibition will be curated by Norman Ackroyd - RA and RE.

It has to be noted, that Norman Ackroyd is an artistic hero in Marie-Louise's eyes; his work is imaginative, and beautifully made, he really is a master of his craft.

The exhibition runs from 9th to 20th November in the Bankside Gallery in London - next to Tate Modern.


*Intaglio from the Italian intagliare - to cut: in its broadest sense means that the plate has lines cut into it to accept ink; either by direct engraving with sharp impliments, or by etching with an acid.
