'Spirit of the Earth', Kim Major-George, 3-26 March 2015

This thought-provoking exhibition of images and words in the Cafe & Foyer Gallery at Letchworth Arts Centre combines the original hand-pulled prints of established print maker Kim Major-George with connecting poems by the contemporary poet Steve Thorp.

"Many of my Collagraph prints go through an array of  different processes with multiple layers of printing plates all being pulled  through my traditional printing press in my Hertfordshire Studio . When dry these images are often hand embellished, with gold leaf and textured materials all creating a unique image before they are double mounted and framed.

In putting this collection together, I hope these images and poems give you as much pleaseure as they gave me when they were created."   KIM MAJOR-GEORGE

Kim is the current President of the BBH Print Society and the author of Collagraph - a journey through texture, the well-received, best selling book on textured printing.

Her solo exhibition complements the BBH Print Society Exhibition - 'Pushing Print' that is on show in the Main Gallery 17 - 28 March 2015.
