exhibition) with Mark Graver, Parallel Prints founder and co-curator 

Yesterday evening the exhibition Parallel Prints was jointly launched at the Art Gallery of Ballarat by the gallery’s Registrar Anne Rowland and Parallel Prints co-curator and participating artist Mark Graver.

It was great to finally meet Mark and his partner Tania Booth, third of the Parallel Prints curators. Mark and Tania are founders of Art at Wharepuke in Kerikeri, New Zealand, where the exhibition is also showing.

Pictured below and above are some of the evenings highlights:
