Original Prints Gallery

One of the concepts of printmaking is that it can provide original works of art of a high standard at a reasonable cost and thus reach a wider ownership and enjoyment of art. At the same time, unlike paintings and sculpture the print is easily transportable. Thus a wide range of many different artists from all over the world can easily be made available. This gallery follows such a policy with fine discrimination. An important artist such as Arp is shown side by side with experimental work from Atelier 17 as well as some of the best local printmakers. Of this group, George Miyasaki’s new lithographs are outstanding.
