Found one of my prints in the window!

Fred Cuming, RA opened the exhibition.
Lots of good and inspiring drawings in exhibition. I was fascinated by this picture by Marie Blake: at first glance, we thought it was a watercolour, but closer inspection revealed that it was a linocut, slowly built up from about five carefully cut blocks, printed in pale thin colours.
And some excellent work by Myrtle Pizzey (sorry, I don't have a photo), and this print by Eric Gaskell.
Again, we were deceived: the detailed, close cutting made it look like wood engraving... but it's a linocut.
I liked this print by Shenac Rogerson, of one of my favourite places, Avebury.
There's some texture on the stones (which unfortunately doesn't show on this photo) which I think was created by spattering ink onto the plate before printing it.
The exhibition continues until Saturday 15 October, 2011.
