An exhibition of artworks by printmaker Jackie Curtis celebrating the landscapes and wildlife of the Somerset Levels

Barn owl in flight

This exhibition brings together artworks by the printmaker Jackie Curtis, produced in response to the landscapes and wildlife of the Somerset Levels.

Jackie works from her Somerset studio but can often be found walking on the Levels, sketch book and camera in hand, looking for ideas to use in her printmaking.

Reedbeds and Waterways will showcase the different printmaking techniques used by the artist. Her monoprints – spontaneous, lively and innovative – are often created as an immediate response to recent experiences. The collagraphs, produced from a collage of materials, are rich in texture and depth of tone. Linocuts are more intricate and stylised with strong elements of pattern, while her woodblocks are influenced by the natural grain, shape and flaws in the wood.

Visit the exhibition in the Hammett Room.

Entry is FREE.

All artworks in the exhibition will be available for sale in the Museum shop.
