After a decade in which there were no exhibitions, the SWE was revived in the early 1980s and has built up an international reputation for excellence. The regular activities of the Society are its annual touring exhibition, quarterly journal ‘Multiples’ and monthly Newsletter. The exhibition, stringently selected from an open submission, visits several venues each year, showing the best of current work from Britain and other countries.
The Society’s role is an important one because it is devoted to creating contacts between wood engravers and those interested in their work, in Britain and around the world, and to sustaining this unique artform.
I am currently a subscriber to the society and once I have been selected for their annual exhibition on 3 occasions I can submit an application to be considered for membership. I have been selected twice for the exhibition, the first time in 2016 with Pee Lee Peep and my print " Atlantic Salmon" is in the 2017 current touring exhibition.
This is my 2016 exhibition image, of Pee Lee Peep, and my 2017 image below.
