Jesmond Dene Real Tennis Club 125th Anniversary Lithographs

A suite of four lithographs produced in collaboration with Hole Editions.

Jesmond Dene Real Tennis Club is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the building of the court.

What is a Lithograph?
It’s a method of printing using a Limestone, crayons and ink. It relies on the fact that oil and water don’t mix. You can watch a video here. (https://youtu.be/S67Qqov0CdU)

Hole Editions is the workshop of Lee Turner. Lee is based in the Cluny building in the Ouseburn, Newcastle. He takes part in the regular Open Days. He collaborates with artists from near and far. Those featured on his website include George Shaw, Yoko Ono and the late Norman Cornish.

“All our work is hand printed and original. We use the most light fast inks available and high quality acid free papers. Editions are carefully curated and documented. Upon completion of projects the stones and/or plates are effaced, thereby preserving the integrity of the edition and ensuring that no further impressions can ever be printed.”

Peter Quinn RWS
Here and There

“Bright colour, a sense of place, and an enjoyment of paint are all hallmarks of Peter Quinn’s work. The scenes he depicts have a life, a vitality about them. They demonstrate a confident draughtsmanship and an eye for details that capture the spirit of a place so completely.”
