What a fantastic year we have had printmaking with all our members! To showcase all the great things we have achieved, an annual report has been put together. Click the image below to download and read the full report.
Yesterday we had the Annual General Meeting to elected the 2015 Management Committee. The following potions have been filled:
President: Jo Lankester
Vice President: Angela Cheung
Treasurer: Alan Junior
Communications Person: Laura Castell
Ambassador: Gabriel Smith
Ambassador: Karen Landt-Isley
The President, Jo Lankester, accompanied Angela Cheung from Umbrella Studio to Brisbane to help with the installation and speak at the opening launch of Wanderlust, an exhibition by PressNorth Printmakers at the Judith Wright Centre, Brisbane.
The project was a collaboration between PressNorth Printmakers, Umbrella Studio of Contemporary Arts, Flying Arts Alliance and the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. The Wanderlust exhibition comprises 27 framed prints by 21 members of PressNorth Printmakers.
The trip to Brisbane was a unique professional development opportunity for both Angela Cheung and Jo Lankester to work with Ben Werner, an industry leader of exhibition installation in Queensland. Ben lead a team of staff and volunteers from both Flying Arts and the Judith Wright Centre at a cracking pace to produce an elegant finish.
Wanderlust is displayed in a converted performing arts theatre at the Judith Wright Centre and has large windows leading directly onto Brunswick St offering passers by a glimpse of the exhibition 24hrs a day. The walls are painted a dramatic black and with the use of barn lights to frame each print individually they have created an amazing visual effect, you are not aware of anything else in the gallery space but the artwork.
The exhibition was officially opened by Judy Watson at the Judith Wright Centre, Brisbane, on the evening of Tuesday 21 October 2014. Flying Arts CEO, Stephen Clarke kicked off the proceedings speaking about the collaboration between the three arts organisations, PressNorth Printmakers, Umbrella Studio contemporary arts and Flying Arts. Jo Lankester was invited to speak after Judy Watson about PressNorth Printmakers. In her speech she highlighted the importance of working in partnership with arts organisations in our region and beyond. PressNorth Printmakers do not have a headquarters to call home, relying on working in partnership to hold exhibitions and run workshops for our members.
