As Peacock’s resident master printmaker, Michael Waight has spent the past 21 years collaborating with dozens of celebrated artists. Ralph Steadman, Barbara Rae, Frances Walker and Donald Urquhart are among them, but the resulting works have never been shown together.

More than 30 prints are here, although it remains only a snapshot of the 300-plus editions and proofing projects Waight has tended to. The artist has curated the display partly as an expression of gratitude.

“Putting this show together allows me and Peacock Visual Arts to very publicly acknowledge our thanks to every artist who has, and continues to, come our way,” he says.

“The artists are the brave and tolerant partners in these collaborations, entrusting ideas to us with faith and understanding that we can do justice to their vision.”

  • Open Tuesday-Saturday 9.30am-5.30pm. Admission free. Follow the gallery on Twitter @PeacockVisArts.
