I’m alternating between excitement and terror about the fact that in two weeks I will be putting up a joint exhibition with Ruth Broadway at Centrespace.
I’m out of my comfort zone – it will be the first time that I have shown a large number of my geological screenprints all together and I am hoping to get my work to a whole new audience.
The private view is from 6.30 to 9pm on Thursday 27th April at Centrespace Gallery. Everyone is welcome, the more the merrier – especially if you have a thing for maps, rocks, museums, colour, or just a glass of wine and a chat.

Rather than dictating exactly which colours will appear on a print, I am letting the colours decide for themselves. For my circle prints I am mixing inks to match colours from the key of a geological map, and then seeing what colours are created when the inks are overprinted. A little bit scary, but very rewarding…

An article about my work in the online version of The Bristol Magazine:
A Platform for Local Art
There is never a dull moment at Bristol Temple Meads. A vibrant hub of activity for commuters heading to and from the city to begin their working day, excited adventurers heaving their backpacks on their shoulders and bidding farewell to Bristol, and don’t even get me started on the colourful array of artwork lining the platforms.
Local artist Emily Ketteringham is a screen printing artist and printmaker with a passion for Bristol’s quirks and colourful contours.

After three years of work, and many changes of direction, my MA show is ready.
Thank goodness for strong magnets and entomology pins.
This is going to end up as a big long print that will be folded into a zigzag
