Croeso/Welcome

Artist/Printmaker Ann Lewis' work proves that although considered by some as one of the simplest forms of printmaking, linocutting should never be underestimated as a challenging, creative and exciting medium capable of producing a broad range of evocative images. Ann produces original, limited edition, linocuts in her studio overlooking the Ogwen Valley in North Wales.

Ann's prints, paintings and drawings are almost without exception inspired by the North Wales landscape.

Ann's work can currently be seen at the Tegfryn Gallery, Menai Bridge, Anglesey, Martin Tinney Gallery in Cardiff, Galeri in Betws-y-Coed, The Royal Cambrian Academy in Conwy, White Lion Street Gallery in Tenby, The Contemporary Six in Manchester and For Arts Sake, Printmaker's Gallery in Ealing, London.

2016

June 27th - Summer exhibitions

Hot on the heels of the Big Steam Print, I'm busy printing and framing new work for several summer exhibitions. A new 8 colour reduction, 'The silence of fallen trees, Rhaeadr Arthog' (detail below) is now available in the landscape gallery.



May 4th - Big Steam Print

On the 22nd of May, I'll be taking part in the Big Steam Print, a project organised by Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft. I'll be printing my largest ever linocut, a giant 1m x 1.2m on The Level, on Brighton Promenade.

March 25th - Framing, delivering and planning

A hectic month which saw me printing, framing, delivering framed work to The Contemporary Six Gallery in Manchester and planning for next couple of months which include my partaking in the Big Steam Print in Brighton on May 22nd ... more of this before the day.

February 12th - Return visit

The second edition of the year finds me back at one of my favourite locations, Rhaeadr Ogwen. This winter's wind and rain made it particularly spectacular. The results of a very chilly visit can be seen here.

January 10th - Force I

I've started the new year with a multi-block edition, the first of a series of six which will appear at two-monthly intervals throughout 2016. You can find out more about the first of the 'Force' series here.


2015

December 2nd
My final edition for 2015, 'View from the bridge' is now available in Gallery 1, the landscape gallery.

November 28th
Two new editions are available in Gallery 3, part of an ongoing series recording the habits (primarily sleeping) of my own cats.

November 24th

A month of deadlines with Christmas exhibitions at most of the galleries who show my work. Two new editions will be heading to Tegfryn Gallery in Menai Bridge at the end of the week ... my final committment for the year delivered. I've promised myself some time off from actual printing in December, time to visit new and old locations, some sketching, testing new inks and planning for the coming year.

August

It's been a busy couple of months with an exciting invitation to join a new gallery, The Contemporary Six in Manchester, work going to the Koywood Gallery in Cardiff with the RCA, and five new editions completed, including three new monochrome works produced for Tegfryn Gallery's next exhibtion 'The sea, the sea'. All three are now available in Gallery 1.
