Hidden gems showcasing Preston’s printing heritage are being displayed at a new exhibition.


Bound by Process includes work from the Harris collection dating back to the 1920s.

The works include print techniques such as woodcutting, engraving and lithography.

Four contemporary printmakers from UCLan are also featured in the exhibition which is on display in the PR1 Gallery and at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery.

Exhibition curator Lindsey McCormick said: “Not only does it give us a chance to share with the public some hidden gems that have not been displayed in recent years, it also shows how contemporary work is grounded in traditional processes while embracing modern ideas and printmaking techniques.”

Alex McIntosh, Kathryn Poole, Theresa Taylor and Tracy Hill from the university have seen their work displayed.

Tracy said: “We have a great working relationship with the Harris going back over a number of years and this latest collaborative venture will only strengthen our links. This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to showcase connections by artists which often go unseen. The works on display use techniques grounded in tradition but also highlights the diversity of printmaking in contemporary practice.”
