A woodblock printmakers’ exhibition titled ‘Musicality in Wood’ is underway at Gallery Cosmos located in New DOHS, Mohakhali, Dhaka. Eminent artist Monirul Islam inaugurated the exhibition on February 22, 2019.
The exhibition is the outcome of a printmaking workshop held at Cosmos Atelier71 Studio, conducted by artist Anisuzzaman Anis, Professor, Printmaking Department, Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka. Woodblock prints produced by 30 talented artists who participated in the workshop are on display at the exhibition.
It is mentionable here that woodblock or woodcut is a traditional form of relief printing, where the artist’s design or drawing is made on a piece of wood, and the untouched areas are then cut away with gouges, leaving the raised image which is then inked.
The exhibition will come to an end on March 5, 2019.
