Following a fantastic exhibition at the SW1 Gallery in August, BEARSPACE is pleased to present PRINT & DESIGN NOW! 2011, a pioneering open- submission exhibition set to feature over 150 works by emerging artists and designers who specialise in the mediums of print and design.

Artworks have been selected by a panel of arts professionals ensuring the very best quality of work on show. These include, Julia Alvarez, Director of BEARSPACE, Owen Ward, SW1 Gallery Manager and Mary-Alice Stack, Director of the Own Art Scheme at Arts Council England.

This exhibition showcases the very best in contemporary art and design at prices that are affordable to the younger collector and great examples of limited edition print and design objects by up and coming artists from all over the country. Take this opportunity to invest in artists of the future as selected by some of the UK’s most distinguished authorities on art and design.

Prices range from £25 - £1000 for editioned prints and one off works.
"Printmaking is a fascinating and versatile medium,” says Mary-Alice Stack, Director of the Own Art Scheme" and provides an excellent way for people who are developing an interest in collecting contemporary art to acquire works by both well established and emerging artists."

This exhibition is presented in partnership with Land Securities and the Arts Council England's Own Art scheme, which provides interest free loans of up to £2,000 for buyers of contemporary art.

PRINT & DESIGN NOW, initially showed at the SW1 Gallery, and will then go on to tour at venues in London and the UK, including BEARSPACE and Art Fairs in 2011.
