Tessa Sidey R.I.P

Birmingham Printmakers would like to express their sadness at the death of Tessa Sidey earlier this month and convey our sympathy to her family and colleagues.

As well as curating a series of hugely popular exhibitions including several on aspects of Pre-Raphaelite artists, she was a highly regarded academic with a number of publications and lectured at The Barber Institute.

With a strong passion for original print, Tessa did much to promote the medium and was an enthusiastic patron and support to Birmingham Printmakers which was especially valued when we were threatened with closure.

Above all we will miss her energy, enthusiasm and fun.
