The Great Print Exhibition returns to Rheged for a remarkable sixth year. The largest exhibition of printmaking in the UK opens on Monday 7 December 2020 and runs until Sunday 7 March 2021. The Exhibition will be the first since lockdown to take up residence in the centre’s state-of-the-art gallery space.

Over the last five years, the show has gained an excellent reputation for showcasing both respected and emerging print artists and the 2020 exhibition is no exception: over 800 original prints by 65 artists from around the UK including 12 new names to the Great Print Exhibition – many of them new to the Cumbrian art scene.

Claire and the Rheged team are delighted to bring the Great Print Exhibition back to Rheged in the inspiring gallery space and are looking forward to welcoming socially-distanced visitors to explore this collection. Hung in a salon style, with floor to ceiling prints filling the gallery, as ever, it promises to be a visual feast and a fitting celebration of British printmaking.

The Great Print Exhibition runs from Monday 7 December 2020 to Sunday 7 March 2021. It is open every day from 9am-5.30pm except for Christmas and Boxing Day.
