Robert Taverner at St Judes

I haven't managed to make it over to St Judes Gallery in Aylsham Norfolk but it does seem to have a lot of good English quality printmaking exhibitions and a terrific blog, also Angie Lewin who owns the gallery with husband Simon Lewin is responsible for the p rints and cards and fabric you see in all the best shops.

Robert Taverner has an exhibition opening on the 20th of October at St Judes. He was head of Printmaking at Eastbourne College of Art and Design from 1953, later becoming vice principal until he retired in 1980. Robert Taverner died in 2004. He has been a favourite at Brighton Art Fair being exhibited - with others - by Emma Mason

He was an illustrator and his prints were used for posters for numerous campaigns for clients such as Shell, the BBC, and London Transport
