Mark’s print earns Best in Show prize

WORK by local artist Mark Pearce has been named ‘Best Print in Show’ at an open exhibition.

Best in show: Artist Mark Pearce in his Eskside Studio

Mark’s work has been selected from over 400 submissions to appear in Upfronts Gallery’s annual Cumbrian Open exhibition, and his reduction linocut Watery Sunshine With Buoys earned him the top print accolade.

The annual exhibition, at Upfront’s Gallery near Hutton in the Forest, Penrith, runs until March 3. It was established by the gallery’s owners, Elaine and John Parkinson, to promote the talent of artists living in the county.

And Mark returns to the gallery on May 21, when a six-week solo exhibition will be launched. It will include his oil and mixed media paintings, as well as his unique wood and linocuts.

Mark grew up in Seascale, attending Wyndham School as it was then known, before going on to Carlisle Art College and then Norwich School of Art.

He went on to have a very successful career as a graphic designer in London, he moved back to Cumbria and now lives and works in Ravenglass.

A contemporary landscape painter and printmaker, Mark’s business, Eskside Studio, was set up by himself and his sister, Sarah, in 2010.
