Winners present at Fen Ditton Gallery’s printmaking exhibition launch





Fen Ditton Gallery is presenting a major printmaking exhibition which attracted more than 600 entries from across the country.

The second exhibition of its kind at the gallery, the initiative, begun in 2021 and led by gallery manager Hannah Munby, is a self-funded project supported by gallery owner Lotte Attwood. It held its opening night last Thursday (March 9).

Hannah said: “We had about 70-odd people at the opening night. We had two prizes to give out – Amber Jesson won the overall prize for contemporary printmaking and then there’s an industry magazine called Pressing Matters and they had selected a winner as well, and that was an artist called Rachel Gracey.

“It was really fantastic and very well-received, and then we had lots of visitors over the weekend. Lots of lovely, lovely work and quite a few of the artists had come up from London on Thursday night, despite the weather.”
