PCA Print Commission Launch

Before the week completely runs away from me (and it very nearly has) here are a handful of highlights from the lively launch of the Print Council of Australia's PCA Print Commission 2017 at Collins Place Gallery, Melbourne on Tuesday evening, August 8.

Directly below, five out of the ten Print Commission artists are pictured in front of their works. From left - right they are: myself, Diane Masters, Jacqueline Aust, TJ Bateson and Joel Wolter. 

This is followed by an installation shot of this year's commissioned prints, sans artists. For a clearer view of individual works and to match each print with its maker, go HERE.

It was good to see some familiar faces, including Melbourne-based author, Lucy Sussex, pictured below with my partner, Shane Jones.

Finally, I'm pictured with Sue Westwood, Business Manager of the historic Melbourne Atheneum Library, where my artist book, Leaves of Absence, will be launched later this year. (More about this in a future post). Sue's sister, Diane Masters (pictured top, second from left) is one of this year's print commission artists.

It was a memorable evening, and terrific to see so many people in attendance. The PCA Print Commission 2017 is certainly off to a great start!

The exhibition is current until August 18. For further details, scroll down to my blog post of August 8.
