Kelpra: Artists and Printmakers


We're delighted to welcome 'Kelpra: Artists and Printmakers, Concepts - Conversations – Collaborations' to Ulster Museum on Friday 27th October!
This exhibition is a selection of prints created at the innovative Kelpra Studio, London, taken from both Ulster Museum collection and private collections with additional prints from Advanced Graphics and other print studios across Europe.

Kelpra studio was set up by Chris and Rose (nee Kelly) Prater at their kitchen table in 1957. The studio went on to become one of the most pioneering print studios in history, combining the commercial techniques of screen-printing with fine art practice. Kelpra was renowned for working in close collaboration with artists to produce daring and eye-catching original prints.

The artists in this exhibition worked collaboratively with Kelpra and other print studios, expert printers and technical staff in the course of their careers. They were supported by highly skilled people with dealt with the complex processes involved in fine art printmaking. These prints are the results of the innovative technical and artistic expertise developed in the studios and the sensitive collaboration between individual artists and printmakers.
This exhibition opens on Friday 27th October in Gallery 4 of Ulster Museum. No booking needed.
