    We had a fantastic time at this year’s Hepworth Wakefield Print fair and showed work from 30 Hot Bed Press artists.

    Sales were very good and a huge thanks to everyone who made the journey and managed to catch the fair which featured some very beautiful work and some great galleries.

    If you are a Hot Bed Press member, (even an associate member which is just £25 for the whole year) you get access to submit for our exhibitions and Print exchanges. Call the office to find out more. Exhibiting with us is a great way to get your work seen by customers and galleries and to raise your profile.

    Exhibition Opportunity – Bury Art Gallery

    Print: A Catalyst for Social Change
    9 February – 27 April

    Printed material is used to communicate important information and as a catalyst for change. The ability to reproduce something has been essential in the dissemination of knowledge and ideas. But, is print still relevant in the digital age? This show will include work from Bury Art Museum’s collection and also contemporary printmakers.
