Lino Printing’ Launches at The Young Gallery

Tue 13th November 2012

The
Young Gallery, Scotland’s first gallery dedicated to showcasing children’s art
work, is proud to present its new exhibition ‘Lino Printing’ by second year
pupils at St Mungos Academy. Impact arts are delighted to welcome local MSP
John Mason to launch the exhibition on Friday 16th of November at 10am.

‘Lino Printing’ was created by
the pupils of St Mungos Academy. Using the theme ‘multicultural’ as a basis for
their work, the pupils cut their designs on lino to create these bold and
bright prints. The broad theme gave the pupils the freedom to interpret their
work in a very individual way, and the result is a varied and highly personal
exhibition.

John Mason, SNP MSP for the East End commented:

“I am delighted to have had the
opportunity to open this wonderful exhibition, which really showcases some of
the fantastic talent of 2nd year
pupils at St Mungo’s Academy.

Impact Arts are a great
organisation, based in the East End, and we are really fortunate to have them
working in our community.

The Lino Printing exhibition is
well worth seeing and I would highly recommend it to everyone.”

Liz Shepherd, Gallery Coordinator
said:

‘Working with the second year
pupils at St Mungos Academy was a joy. The enthusiasm and creativity they
brought to the workshops was infectious and you can see from the resulting
exhibition that they really thought about the theme and made it their own. I
can’t wait to see the look on the pupil’s faces and those of their parents and
teachers when they see their work exhibited professionally. I am so pleased
that John will be present to cut the ribbon – this will make the launch all the
more special.”
