Staff and students from the University of the West of England, will be displaying prints at the 25th annual Miniature Print exhibition at Blackwells Bookshop, Park Street in Bristol, from 3 December through to Spring 2010. You can also view the exhibition from the 13 -17 December 2010 in the Foyer at UWE’s Bower Ashton Campus.

UWE’s Centre for Fine Print Research has been working with staff and students from the Department of Art and Design every year for almost three decades, to produce an annual show of limited edition miniature prints.

The project is designed as a print exchange between artists and is sponsored by John Purcell Paper who supply the paper stock.

Prints from the 2010 exhibition are available to buy from Blackwell’s for the duration of the exhibition for £18 each (unframed). The format for the prints is the same every year - with a set paper size (20 x 25 cm) and a maximum image size of 3 inches by 4 inches. The artists are free to decide on the subject and medium of their individual print, which is produced in a limited edition of 60.

This year’s exhibition includes ultra-violet print on vinyl, laser engraving and etching, blind embossing, puff binding, linocuts, lithography, rubber stamp, printed enamel on metal, inkjet and screenprints.
Miniature prints from the 1986-2009 exhibitions are also available to buy and can be viewed at http://www.uwe.ac.uk/sca/research/cfpr/dissemination/exhibitions/MINI%20PRINT/index.html

Each year, the first three editions of prints are archived at the CFPR. The Centre now has an archive of mini prints going back 23 years – a collection of tens of thousands of individual prints, produced by hundreds of staff, students and invited artists using every print process. Prints have been exhibited nationally and internationally, in galleries and print shows from China to South America.
