New exhibition by Malvern artist, Tia Lambert, at iapetus gallery, malvern from 6th til 21st May 2017
We’re excited to tell you all about our new exhibition by Malvern artist Tia Lambert. Tia returns to us with her new exhibition, Cow Parsley, Paper and Print… a painters journey into printmaking. Best known for her flowing watercolour landscapes of the Malvern Hills, Tia has branched into printmaking. Taking the same subject Tia has translated her style into bold and colourful prints of the Malverns.
Tia says, “Screenprinting is a new and exciting departure for me, a journey from paint into print. With all the challenges of learning a new language, this medium presents endless opportunities to layer vibrant colour, texture and line, conveying familiar landscapes in a new and dynamic light.”
These new limited edition prints demonstrate the breadth of Tia’s skills as an artist, capturing the hills in a new and exciting way. The exhibition will include screen printed landscapes, as well as a small number of pen and ink drawings. She will also be launching a range of greetings cards featuring many of her latest pieces.
Tia Lambert’s Cow Parsley, Paper and Print exhibition opens at our Great Malvern gallery and online at www.iapetus.co.uk on Saturday 6th May and runs until Sunday 21st May. Gallery opening times are Monday – Saturday, 9.30am until 5.30pm and Sundays, 12 until 4pm.
We recently visited Tia to see her screen printing skills in action. Her studio is in a sweet old converted caravan sat in her beautiful garden at the foot of the Malvern Hills. It was a bit tight, but we squeezed in and recorded her creating one of the pieces for her new exhibition. Screen printing is a really interesting technique, full of all manner of processes to create the finished piece. Hopefully the video will give you a better understanding of how Tia’s artwork comes together. However we had to cut out the less glamorous parts out, like washing the screens out in an old tub after each print!
