13 July – 2 September 2019 at the Ryedale Folk Museum gallery at Hutton-le-Hole.
“Artifact II” – ‘an exhibition by members of the Printmakers Circle (a group of ten North Yorkshire printmakers, John is one of them) exploring the theme of ‘artifact’ = a cultural, manmade object, through limited editions of specially prepared prints’. This theme was set by the museum.
Each of the ten artists received a presentation box of all ten of these specially prepared theme prints; the remainder are for public sale, either as a set, or as individual prints.
In addition to the ‘artifact’ prints referred to, each member showed 3 prints each at the exhibition. On Saturday 10 August, a well patronised ‘mid-show viewing’ event was held at the gallery. On the same day the museum curator asked that we extend the exhibition until 30 September; we agreed to do so.
