Greenwich Printmakers is run as a co-operative, staffed and administered by the artists.  As well as showing across the UK, they have shown in Germany, Canada, the USA and Moscow.  Greenwich Printmakers have also shown in many prestigious exhibitions in the UK, the most notable being at the National Theatre and the Barbican.  In their fortieth anniversary year they have shown at the Salvation Army International HQ and Watts Gallery Artists Village near Guildford in Surrey.  Their artists are regularly selected for the RE Masters and the National Original Print Exhibition at Bankside Gallery, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and The Discerning Eye.

Ideally this space will be accessible to as many people as possible in line with our accessibility policy. The space must be presentable to the general public and enable appropriate display for your artwork. For example upstairs studios and small cluttered spaces will usually not be acceptable.

  6. The selection committee takes its position very seriously and is answerable to the entire Group. As such its decision is final and no dialogue will be entered into on an applicant being refused membership.
  7. Different specific criteria, such as a requirement for a specific discipline, may also be taken into account. This will be determined annually by the entire Group who then direct the selection committee.
