When gallery owner Bob Cox first approached artists Phillip Reeves, Roy Wood and Kim Kempshall 50 years ago with the idea of establishing an open-access printmaking studio, little did they realise what their legacy would be. They were simply looking to create a space where they and their fellow artists could create and show their work.
But, because of their passion for printmaking, countless artists have been able to pass through Edinburgh Printmakers' doors, creating new work and improving their skills. Professional artists, print enthusiasts and those of all ages have had the opportunity to learn and experience printmaking to support their practice, for education and for creative enjoyment.
By including a gift in your will, you too, will be helping Edinburgh Printmakers to ensure the practice of printmaking is supported in the years to come. Your gift could:
allow our studio to provide high quality, open-access printmaking facilities for artists
ensure printmaking skills are passed on to the next generation by nurturing new talent
help to widen access to the arts through our inspirational education activities
allow our galleries to showcase and celebrate the best in contemporary printmaking
help to continue a long tradition of printmaking excellence in Scotland
While we cannot say precisely how your gift may be used in the years to come, we do know your generosity will help to ensure the future of printmaking.
