Prints of Darkness

North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre

This exhibition is temporarily closed due to the Covid 19 outbreak. We plan to re-open the exhibition later this year.

FREE Entry

An exciting touring exhibition exploring record cover art is brought to you by Edinburgh Printmakers. The exhibition celebrates the vinyl record as an abiding audio-visual artefact, recalling the golden age of the record cover in the thick of post-psychedelia’s goth-surrealistic art-nouveau apocalyptic landscape explosion, now being revived in a resurgence of collectable limited edition records with original artwork.

It includes original prints by Scottish artists and a new LP of music by People Like Us, aka international award winning multimedia artist Vicki Bennett.

Edinburgh Printmakers is an international leader in innovative processes in contemporary print, commissioning and publishing prints with some of the most exciting local, national and international artists living today.

Kindly supported by the Scottish Arts Council.
