Virginia Woolf and the Hogarth Press

Exhibition runs from 29 October to 10 December 2016

We are seeking artwork in a range of media inspired by Virginia and Leonard Woolf and The Hogarth Press.

In conjunction with the Richmond Literature Festival, this exhibition will celebrate a century since Virginia and Leonard Woolf began publishing in Richmond. Named after the house they moved to in 1915, they established the Hogarth Press in spring 1917, to self-publish and also to provide an important opportunity for writers and artists to showcase their work uncensored and in small print runs.

Through an exploration of the Hogarth Press, its unique aesthetic and the opportunity it presented for book illustration; contemporary artists will be given the opportunity to respond to Virginia Woolf, the Press and its legacy.
