Research News, February 2017

Thursday 23 February 2017

Two members of the School of Art History, Ann Gunn and Billie Rough, participated in the 2017 Society for Scottish Art History symposium, ‘Printmaking in Scotland’. This well-attended two-day event was a collaboration between the SSAH, Edinburgh Printmakers, National Galleries Scotland, and the University of St Andrews. It took place at Edinburgh Printmakers and the National Gallery of Scotland on 3-4 February 2017.  Participants included scholars, printmakers, curators and artists.  At Edinburgh Printmakers, a lithography demonstration in the studio by master printmaker Alistair Clark was followed by a presentation by artist Andrew Mackenzie about how printmaking has affected his artistic practice.   On the second day, papers covered a wide range of topics and approaches: the early development of printmaking in the 18th century, Scottishness and politics, collecting and collections, and contemporary printmaking and process.
