Print work on display

AN exhibition by printmaker Dawn Brooks can be seen at Crescent Arts, where Dawn has a studio.

Fragment Series consists of work produced over the last year.

Dawn explores printmaking and drawing processes which combine drypoint etching and collagraph on a large scale, requiring several plates to form an image.

The prints acquire a powerful physical presence in a space devised for the show, says Crescent Arts director Stuart Cameron.

Dawn has had a studio there since 2002 and has exhibited her work widely. She won a prize at a print competition in Cornwall last year, which led to an exhibition in New Zealand later this year.

In 2008 Dawn was awarded a grant for research and development by the Arts Council.

To coincide with the exhibition, she will offer an introduction to drypoint etching at a workshop on 19 February, during Coastival.

The exhibition runs until 20 February and can be seen from 11am-5pm Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, plus Sunday 20 February.
