Pam Grimmond Exhibition

Online exhibition

Pam has exhibited her linoprints at Chantry House Gallery for the last eight years and I have continued to be impressed by the quality and variety of the work that she has produced and continues to produce. We had planned to hold a solo exhibition for Pam this year, which unfortunately was postponed due to the current situation we are facing with the coronavirus pandemic. However, I am pleased to announce that we are holding an online exhibition of her work, which includes almost the whole portfolio of Pam’s linoprints. I am also delighted to be showing five new prints that are now available to purchase through our website.

“My work is informed by the rural, urban and coastal landscapes of North Yorkshire where I live and work. Areas of the Northumberland coastline are also an important source of inspiration, providing an environment full of diverse and exciting colours and textures. Close observation of birdlife and seasonal changes in the landscape also inform my work.

Engaging closely with the printing process, I layer several blocks of line, colour and texture to create a series of proofs, using semi-transparent inks in subtle colours. Negotiating the balance between these layers leads to the gradual realization of my images”.    Pam Grimmond
