Alison Smyth, Oyster Community Press director said: “It has been a privilege to work with our cohort of 20 women of all ages and backgrounds on this project and we can’t wait to see the My Place exhibition up in the wonderful Whistler Gallery at the Jerwood Dance House.

“The women have worked hard to learn the art form of printmaking and we think the public will be moved by the work they have produced in just six week.”
