‘Summer 2015 Edinburgh Printmakers are very happy to be taking part in The ACTINIC Festival as one of the partnering venues.
Edinburgh Printmakers will host a members’ exhibition of prints, showcasing different photo processes used in printmaking. To accompany the exhibition we will invite the audience to our studio for a Printmaking Demonstration covering Photo Lithography and Photo Etching on Saturday 18 July.
The ACTINIC Festival is a new series of exhibitions and events featuring Scottish and international artists at the intersection of analogue photographic media and other arts.
Following on in the spirit of Alt-Photo Festival in Edinburgh of 2013 and the Edinburgh’s Pinhole Festival of 2012, this exciting programme presents fresh approaches to analogue and alternative photography – incorporating an international selection of new and emerging artists.
This festival is being hosted in a number of world class venues including Stills – Scotland’s Centre for Photography, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Edinburgh Printmakers, and Summerhall, with others venues to be announced. The exhibitions and workshops are being curated in collaboration with each venue as a way to promote the arts and further public engagement with the concepts behind ACTINIC.’
