If you’ve not had a chance to see Tŷ Pawb’s excellent Print International exhibition then there’s some good news!
The exhibition will now be staying open until February 9, so you now have an extra week to come and enjoy a feast of fabulous artwork from all over the world.
Print International features work by over 85 artists from 10 countries over 3 continents.
Over 3,500 visitors have seen the exhibition since the opening day back in November 2019.

One prize remains to be awarded – The People’s Prize. This will be decided by a public vote which is taking place throughout the exhibition, so don’t forget to pick your favourite when you visit!
“This could be the biggest print exhibition in Wales”
Exhibition Curator, Tŷ Pawb’s Karen Whittingham, said: “We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the response we’ve had for this exhibition. We had over 400 images submitted from all over the world and we think this might actually be the biggest print exhibition in Wales!
“The opening night was a wonderful occasion a huge thanks to Adam Netting, our gallery technician, for all his work in putting the exhibition together, to all our exhibition and awards sponsors and of course to all the artists and to our judging panel.”
A live print studio in the gallery
Alongside Print International, artist Pam Newall has collaborated with Tŷ Pawb and Oswestry’s Designs in Mind to develop a live print studio in the gallery. Under the title Make Print the studio will create print designs that will feature on products that will be sold through Designs in Mind’s JOLT and Siop//Shop at Tŷ Pawb.
As part of Make Print, Pam Newall has also curated an archive of prints and flyers which represent a specific era in the 1970’s. The archive has been generously loaned from the Bradford Print Studio by Dr Robert Galeta, Lecturer, and Pam Brooks, Lecturer in Critical and Contextual Studies, at Bradford School of Art.
