Agnew’s work (with Dunbar) on the annual ‘Portfolio’ project seeks to provide students with a first hand understanding of the curation, production and dissemination of the editioned print, producing work for a limited edition box set and for exhibition. The portfolio produced was the fourth, bringing together internal practitioners from within the school, significant external artists of distinction and students in the final year of under graduate studies. The project aims to facilitate good professional practice in relation to teaching/learning and foster an environment for the development of innovative and imaginative printmaking methodologies, within the printmaking department and beyond. The project examines both traditional and new supports for the production of multiples of work in contemporary print form, expanding the breadth of practice within the field. The portfolio examines curatorial/pedagogic strategies and aims to expose the originality of fine art print production from the North East of Scotland. External invited external artists were Ruth Beardsworth (Scotland), Joyce Cairns (Scotland) and Tonia Mathews (USA). Invited artists from within the teaching staff at Gray’s were Kathryn Sharp, Craig Ellis and David Henderson. Supported by an RGU John Gray award of £5,000 for innovative curriculum development, the project continues to build on teaching/ learning and develop strategies to enhance the quality of the student experience in terms of professional practice. This evolving initiative is now in its fifth year (completion deadline June 2007) and seeks to promote the department/school through exhibition nationally/internationally, exposing the character and philosophies of prints made in the North East of Scotland to a national and international audience. External invited artists for Grays printmaking Portfolio No 5 are John Byrne, Claire Roberts, Joe Fan (all Scotland)
