The 2019 Lincoln Print Fair was a great success. Thank you for all your support. Stay in touch. We will be doing it all again in 2020.
We combined an exhibition and fair into one! - The space contained incredible prints to see and buy, showcasing well known artists, Turner Prize winners and a host of up and coming and established local artists.
There was something for everyone!
Works by Tracy Emin, Turner Prize winners Jeremy Deller and Mark Leckey were on show. As well as british greats like Joe Tilson and Mat Collishaw and the recently arrested, eco campaigner Gavin Turk were displayed. Alongside these wonderful pieces were works by international and local award winning artists.

The fair launched exclusive prints by local artists with national and international plaudits, these included:
Darren Neave has curated the displays, he is perhaps better known as one half of ‘The Little Artists’… most famous for making Lego creations of Damien Hirst’s shark and Tracey Emin’s bed… He is also a recent Masters graduate from the University of Lincoln.
Darren will be launching a cheeky new print edition, high-lighting the onslaught of growing old discracefully!
A Waddington based artist. From the heart of rural Lincolnshire, his work has been exhibited widely, in both the UK and abroad.
He loves art books and his work employs a tension with ‘artful and respectful defacement’. His work is compelling and intricate.
Internationally renowned woodturner and sculptor, is a liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Turners of London and a scholar of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST). Her most recent work 'Distillation of Experiences', takes the form of a full sized, wooden shed, comprising of one hundred and twenty eight, pierced, detailed wooden panels, depicting poignant life events. Inspired by this artwork, Joey is now producing unique, ephemerally-embossed prints, bridging the gap between traditional and contemporary wood-cut processes.
A master model maker, he produces 2D pieces that illustrate the ghoulish and scary miniature worlds he makes. His drawings are delicate, adding in rainbows and flashes of colour to inspire and snare the viewer.
Other highlights will include DIY prints and a selection from the multitude of talents from the students at the University, invited artists and print makers. There are plenty of undiscovered talents, all of which push the notion of contemporary print making and reproduction.
