The director of Flowers Gallery, Matthew Flowers, will open the show on 9 April presenting over 60 edgy prints by both established and emerging artists. The diversity of art works in this show aims to raise the question 'Which one is your favourite?'
Hazel Stone, curator for the Sidney Cooper Gallery, said: “The list of artists and the range of different print techniques in the show makes for a truly vibrant experience, with a mix of figurative and abstract works hanging alongside each other.
“Works include Peter Howson's Stations of the Cross, Trevor Sutton's Reflection monotypes, a selection of etchings from Stephen Chambers and a set of prints from Bernard Cohen's striking About Now series. “
There are also a number of artists catalogues for sale during the exhibition.

Notes to Editor
Angela Flowers established her first gallery in 1970 on Lisle Street in London's West End.
In the 1980s, the gallery was one of the first to open in London's East End, in a former laundry/fur storage facility in Hackney, and the space became known as Flowers East. Matthew Flowers, Angela's son, took over day to day operations in 1989. In 1997, the gallery expanded further with a Los Angeles space, at Bergamot Station.
Flowers has participated regularly in art fairs internationally. The programme in both the UK and US comprises all media by established and emerging artists, as an active publisher of prints and multiples, and with a growing department in contemporary international photography.
