Opening with the artists,
18 November from 6pm
This is the annual exhibition of the Sydney printmakers, a society of graphic artists who have come together to form a group, not because the print is a new thing but an old one, neglected. They hope to exchange their knowledge and experience, to show their works and, by exchange with overseas prints societies, to exhibit work of international standing”
Since then, Sydney Printmakers, as a highly professional body of artists, has flourished with a membership now exceeding 60 members. Current print practice by the members of Sydney Printmakers embraces a wide range of print methodologies that include highly contemporary and innovative processes alongside more traditional techniques; educating the public about printmaking media and techniques remains an important function of the group. Through regular artistic engagement and exhibitions in Australia, Asia and Europe, members of Sydney Printmakers have continued the creativity, innovation and professionalism of early members such as Margaret Preston, Earle Backen, John and Barbara Coburn, Eva Kubos and Elizabeth Rooney. Many Sydney Printmakers members have been practising printmaking for a considerable length of time and are highly influential in their fields, exhibiting regularly and also teaching at various educational institutions.
