Marking the gallery’s tenth birthday, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art has launched a new specially commissioned range of artist limited edition prints, BALTIC Editions.
The donated works, all by artists who have previously exhibited at the gallery, will go on sale during the birthday year and proceeds from the sales will help support BALTIC’s exhibition and education programme. BALTIC Editions will be exclusively available from BALTIC Shop, online and in-store.
BALTIC Editions will include works by the following artists:
MARTIN BOYCE / GRAHAM DOLPHIN / ANTONY GORMLEY / DAN HOLDSWORTH / ANT MACARI / YOKO ONO / CORNELIA PARKER / ELIZABETH PRICE / MATT STOKES / MARK TITCHNER / MARK WALLINGER
Godfrey Worsdale, BALTIC Director explains: “We have been overwhelmed with the support the artists have given us; it is through their generosity that we are able to mark the birthday in such a fantastic way. At a time when all cultural organisations are experiencing challenging financial times we would like to thank the artists for their incredibly kind donation which will enable us to raise considerable funds.
Each of the limited edition prints will be released individually during this year and priced in relation to the number of editions. By purchasing one of these rare and specially commissioned works, collectors will not only receive a great piece of art but will also support our exhibition programme and education and community work for many years to come.”
The series launched on 13 July 2012 with Mount St. Helens from Spirit Lake by Dan Holdsworth, closely followed by works by artists Graham Dolphin, Ant Macari, Jim Shaw and Yoko Ono.
Further details of each of the artist prints will be announced throughout the year. All prints can be purchased in person from BALTIC Shop or online from balticmill.com/editions.
Works can be bought using the Own Art scheme, offering an easy and affordable way to spread the cost of purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan.
