18 Dec 2019 – 7 January 2020

‘From Alba to Arabia’ is an exhibition of contemporary art from Scotland. The exhibition, by Highland Print Studio from Inverness in Scotland, will be on display at Stal Gallery from 18 Dec 2019 – 7 January 2020.

Highland Print Studio is a printmaking and digital imaging artists workshop based in the picturesque Scottish Highlands, just north of Loch Ness. The studio has facilities for traditional printmaking techniques such as etching, silkscreen, woodcut and lithography, alongside a digital imaging suite. Highland Print Studio runs classes where people, from professional artists to complete beginners, can learn these techniques and continue to use the studio to create their own artwork.

Printmaking encompasses a range of techniques that can create images of great richness and diversity. This encourages many artists choose to specialise in printmaking and use it as their main medium for creative expression. The work on show is by artists like this; printmaking experts who work or teach at Highland Print Studio. The exhibition also includes work made during Highland Print Studio’s publications programme, where we collaborate with artists from other disciplines and support them to create new artworks using printmaking.

Highland Print Studio will be giving a presentation on their work and providing printmaking workshops for those wishing to try some of the techniques used in the exhibition. Please contact Stal Gallery for more information on these.

This exhibition has been generously supported by the British Council, DCMS and GREAT through the UK-Gulf Culture and Sport programme.
