Next year to commemorate 150 years since his death in 1870, Rochester Art Gallery will be hosting our first Print Open Call as part of ‘Dickens 150’. Printmakers are invited to create works on the theme of ‘Dickens, Death & Drood’ for a special exhibition ‘The Last Dream of my Soul’ at the Gallery running from April-June 2020.

Prints will be exhibited alongside beautiful Victorian funerary treasures, mourning dress and Dickens items loaned from the Rochester Guildhall Museum collection and their Dickens expert will also supporting the curation of the exhibition. Taking part is FREE and subject to space we plan to exhibit at least one work by each entrant.
