Goldfields Printmakers at Firestation Print Studio

Artist/educator James Pasakos founded Goldfields Printmakers in 2012 as a point of connection for printmakers whose practice is based in the Goldfields region of Victoria. In recent times the group has exhibited at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, Art at Wharepuke, Kerikeri Bay of Islands, Northland, New Zealand, and IMPACT 8, the International Print Conference in Dundee, Scotland.

On Saturday, October 4, the Goldfields Printmakers will make their Melbourne debut in an eponymous group exhibition at the Firestation Print Studio in Armadale.

Also making her Melbourne debut, if only in linocut form, is Moth Woman Vigilante #1 (pictured below).
