Somerset House

Yesterday I visited Somerset house to see the Print Club London's film poster exhibition. I got there to find that there was also the AOI world illustration awards exhibition - Bonus!

There was some absolutely stunning pieces of illustration work in the exhibition, and there were some lovely books to look through too, I think my favourite piece was the one above by Nicholas Stevenson, I love going to exhibitions and finding new artists, illustrators and sources of inspiration. 

The exhibition is on until 29th August at the Embankment galleries in the south wing, also, on Thursdays there is an 'Artists show and tell'.

The Print Club London film poster exhibition is on in the East wing galleries, which was such a beautiful light setting, amongst old fire places and plants, it had such a lovely feel to it.

The prints all relate to a film which is shown each night on a large screen between 4th-17th August, and you can buy the prints and other cool things in the little shop at the exhibition. Who doesn't love a look round a gift shop?!

There are events, workshops and demonstrations happening through out the exhibition and a film reel of the prints being made at the Print Club London Studio.

The exhibition is on until 17th August in the East wing galleries.

Art trail - Print Club London Blisters 2014

Blisters: The sound Sessions was the second exhibition of our weekend Art trail, if you didn't see the first one you can see that here.

The Print Club London is a print studio in London that often put exhibition on, this one was the 5th of its kind. 


There was 40 exhibiting artists each with an edition of 40 signed prints for only £40 each.

The posters were all inspired by music and all so different in style and colour. The exhibition was held in MC Motors which is a large events venue opposite the studios, it was filed with an array of vintage props including a portrait of the Royal family which was hung at the very top of the very high walls.


This Rose Blake print was my favourite of all the prints, but I also liked the two below, maybe it's the matching colours? 


Unfortunately the show has now finished - I will be sure to go again next year, maybe i'll even have some money to buy one - as it was supposed to be a free art day I couldn't really buy one this time.
