The second annual Leeds Print Festival hosted a range of events this past weekend at Leeds Gallery, Munro House, York Road, Leeds.

The events included an opening party on Friday 18th, the Leeds Print Fair on Saturday 19th, a series of talks on Sunday 20th, and an ongoing print exhibition.
The exhibition features print-based works by Dan Mather, Marc Ross/Prefab77, Robbie Porter, Sarah Milton and Sebastian Koseda.

The Leeds Print Fair featured ten artists and printmakers from across the country including Karoline Prerrie, Back to Back Press, Ditto Press, Bradley Books and Caroline Pratt.
Talks were given by Alan Kitching, Matthew The Horse and the Print Project on various aspects of contemporary printmaking.

Event organiser, Amber Smith, noted that ‘we are continuing to work with unbelievably talented people so that the hard “second album” has come together, and we have a programme of exhibitions, events, workshops and talks – really, you have got to love print for that.’

The Leeds Print Festival will run until January 27th.
