This year the ever-popular print
galleries have been moved to the heart of the Summer Exhibition. As the most
experienced member of this year’s Hanging Committee, and with a formidable
knowledge of – and passion for – printmaking, Norman Ackroyd RA was especially
selected to take on the considerable task of hanging both rooms.
Here Ackroyd takes us through some of the highlights of the prints in this year’s exhibition, alongside a number of other works that have drawn his attention during the hanging of the show.
