It's been a journey this year from idea stage to gathering printmakers' work to organising exhibitions! Take a look at where the project is heading to next...
Tanat Theatre, Llanrhaedr-ym-Mochnant, Wales.
Thought Press Project Exhibition opens 6th August 2021
Llanrhaeadr’s Tanat Theatre has had an overhaul! The newly refurbished theatre will be open for the public to come and have a look in August and this will tie in with a National Print Exhibition. Two local artists, Jonny Scarramuzza @jonny_scarramuzza & Ben Clifton @ben_idris_art involved in the #thoughtpressproject - are bringing an exhibition of the work to Llanrhaeadr on the first weekend of August 2021.
All 100 prints will be displayed at the fabulously newly refurbished theatre on Friday 6th August from 6-9 pm and then over the weekend from 10am-1pm. The bar will be open for refreshments throughout and people will be on hand to answer questions about the work on display, the theatre and all of the projects that go on there. FREE ENTRY.
A big thanks to Jonny, without whom this exhibition would not be possible!

We 100 printmakers are still searching for any other spaces to exhibit our work in the Northern and Midlands regions, or any space large enough for the entire body of work if possible!Any curators out there with a gallery on open call, if you can give this project a free exhibition space, any time from this month onwards, please let us know!
