The Ilam Campus Gallery produces a series of limited edition artist prints as part of our exhibition programme. Limited editions are created in our Print Studio exclusively for the Ilam School of Fine Arts by exhibiting artists of the Ilam Campus Gallery. All proceeds from the editions go directly towards supporting the artists and studio programmes at the Ilam School of Fine Arts.
In our 2019 series we currently have new unique editions available from artists Tyne Gordon, Ella Sutherland, Ciaran Begley, and Catherine Griffiths.
Tyne Gordon graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts with a BFA (Hons) in painting in 2015. In 2018, Gordon was the recipient of the Olivia Spencer Bower award.
