* Provide first-class printmaking facilities to meet the needs of our studio users.
* Place the very best artists at the centre of our programme and promote printmaking to the widest possible audience.
* Promote and sell prints, thereby generating income as well as contributing to the stature and financial well being of artists and printmakers in the North East.
* Contribute to ongoing research and development of printmaking together with printmakers from around the world.
* Act as a focus and catalyst for all those involved in the advocacy of printmaking, including schools, colleges, curators, artists groups and collectors.

Stephen Chambers RA is well known as a painter and also as a prolific printmaker. Northern Print is delighted to exhibit a selection of his screenprints, etchings, woodcuts and lithographs in addition to a new edition of etchings made with Nutmeg Editions.

There is a sense of narrative present in Chambers' work which is universal, timeless and reflective of the human condition. His prints are visually rich, often using intense colours, clean lines and intricate textures.
