Congratulations to Paul Thurlby (www.paulthurlby.com) whose illustrations are now being sold at the Tate Britain shop.
A great night at the Fine Art Trade Guild Centenary last night. We were honured to pick up this years award for Print Quality. Many thinks to everyone last night and special thanks to Sian who worked on our submission.
Colin Ruffell, presenting the award said "I was very pleased to present The Dot Foundry with The Fine Art Trade Guild 2010 Print Quality Award. The image of mine that was chosen by The Guild to be used in the nationwide competition was colourful, varied in texture, and detailed. The entrants were given a difficult task. I am sure that many artists and photographers will benefit from your printing experience and skillful colour management prowess. Well done again for winning this award."

We're launching Hahnemuhle Leonardo this month which we personally feel is something the fine art canvas market has been waiting for a long time. From Hahnemuhle: "Leonardo Canvas has a surface which is water resistant and hard-wearing. With its fine, smooth structure, Leonardo Canvas is perfectly suitable for both art reproductions and photography." It's 390 gsm, Poly-Cotton, white, gloss.
Paul Thurlby (www.paulthurlby.com) is having great sucess with his limited edition "Alphabet" range of illustrations. Rave reviews by Sunday Times journalist and author India Knight (www.indiaknight.posterous.com) certainly help. The limited edition prints are available for sale from his web site.
Judy Barnes (http://judybarnes.idshosting.co.uk) launched her permanent exhibition. "The task was to paint the 4 Elements + Day and Night, on 10ft and 12ft lengths of oak tree trunks to signify The Beginning of Creation - I only used the images within the grain instead of imposing shapes on to the surface." They are on permanent exhibition at the Pilgrimage Gardens of St.Cleer, Cornwall.

The Dot Foundry was pleased to attend the 2009 Fine Art Trade Guild Awards ceremony this year in Coventry and also to be one of the four nominees in the Print Quality category. Sian Buckland said "It was a great night and one I'll look forward to again - we were all thrilled to be selected as one of the final four and we'll be going for it again next year!"
