A Different Way of Working
Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Prints Exhibition
Curated by Ann Gunn, St Andrews University
Spanning fifty years of vibrant, colourful and abstract print-making by a master of the genre, this exhibition will cover Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’s work from the early 1950s to 2003. Wilhelmina first experimented with linocuts, etching and lithography during the 1950s, and in the following decades she made a handful of prints with master print-makers Stanley Jones and Kip Gresham. But it was the extraordinary, creative collaboration with Carol Robertson and Robert Adam of Graal Press, Roslin, near Edinburgh – which she began in 1998 aged 86 – that produced a dynamic collection of 60 prints in the five years before she died in January 2004.
This exhibition includes a selection of Wilhelmina’s tools and studio materials and is on tour from the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust.
