Time & Place Exhibition
Our new exhibition in the ‘Inside Out Gallery’ at the Heritage Centre is ‘Time & Place’ by Alison Diamond (Rogers), MA MAFA Artist/Printmaker – a member of Northern Print Studios, Allendale Forge Network and the Tin Shed Artist Network.
Alison’s work explores various printing techniques such as etching/aquatint, screen printing, linocut, wood engraving and monotype. Her printmaking practice reflects experiences in her life and is therefore influenced by her background in the North East of England.
“I use the figure in many works, individuals carrying out the everyday activities. Recent reflection upon beach life, family and café culture are areas I intend to focus upon over the coming year. I aim to imply that the individuals depicted, experience a genuine quality of life that may not, on first impressions be apparent.
I have a passion for drawing, perspective, colour and pattern through the diversity of print media, enjoying challenges and the surprises each process provides along the way.
Employed as an Academic tutor at Sunderland University, teaching printmaking for Illustration, Graphics and Fashion, I also work as a freelance artist/consultant within community settings, initiating projects.
I exhibit my work widely nationally and internationally. Recently exhibited at Baltic Gateshead and Awagami Factory, Japan. I was selected to show at Printfest Ulverston 2022 and received the Haighs Award.
I am currently showing alongside Manchester Academy members at Stockport War Memorial Gallery. I have been selected to take part in Sheffield Print Festival November 2022 and have been invited to show at Rheged Great Print 8 Exhibition, Penrith January 2023. “
