Exhibition Excitement!

After months of planning, and seeking art submissions for our project, we have been overwhelmed and delighted by the number and quality of artworks sent to us, the amount of thought and care that has gone into their preparation, and the generosity of everyone who has donated art.  Thank you so much, everyone!

We have so many beautiful artworks - the Papergirl Team is very envious of those who are going to receive them!! 

At the last count (yes, we are still counting!) almost 70 artists have contributed, both professional and amateur, and we have over 200 individual submissions to exhibit!

We are thrilled with this figure, since it's the first time the project has been run in Cardiff, and Papergirl was a new concept to most people - although some of our contributors had previously sent work to other Papergirl projects around the world.  Our artists are a cosmopolitan lot - being from all over South Wales, London, Manchester, Bristol, and the US..

Our exhibition will be open from Saturday 11th June to Friday 17th June at The Printhaus, 70A Llandaff Road, Canton, Cardiff CF11 9NL.  Come and see the wonderful submissions we have had, and also the great facilities at The Printhaus - we think it'll inspire you to take part next year!

Opening times:

Saturday 11th June    11am - 5pm
Sunday 12th June      11am - 5pm
Monday 13th June-   11am - 2pm and 4pm - 7pm
Friday 17th June
