Passion2Print is Leicester Print Workshop’s biennial exhibition of contemporary printmaking.
This exhibition showcases the high quality and ambitious work being created by LPW artists, displaying their experimental, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to printmaking.
This year P2P 2014 took over Leicester’s Cultural Quarter with the exhibition being held in multiple venues: Phoenix Café Bar, Curve Theatre’s exhibition areas and mezzanine and the LCB Depot’s café, gallery and Print Room.
The show featured new work by over thirty LPW Artists:

The selection panel comprised Ruth Sumner, Senior Lecturer in Fine Art from De Montfort University and Chris Tyrer, Digital Arts Coordinator at Phoenix, Leicester.
