Marked by Water – Friday 14th June
Marked by Water – Printmaking Exchange Exhibition
Opening Night: Friday 14th June 6 – 9PM
Exhibition: 15th June – 29th June
A Touring Print Exhibition with 50 artists from Newcastle Printmakers Workshop and Warringah Printmakers Studio working across all techniques of print that will include lithography, etching, screen printing, lino and wood cuts.
The exhibition Marked by Water offers a unique opportunity for some 50 artists from Newcastle Printmakers Workshop (NPW) and Warringah Printmakers Studio to express their ideas via print media. Linked by similar environments – their studios’ proximity to water – these artists pay homage to the importance of harbours and waterways in the life of their two cities and to the important role water plays in printmaking processes. Environmental concerns feature significantly as dry, cracked river beds are juxtaposed against flooding valleys, highlighting the diversity of the Australian landscape.
The exhibition will open Friday 14th June at Curve Gallery Newcastle and then tour to Sydney for the opening at Warringah Printmakers Studio Gallery in July.
