Last weekend of ‘The Printmaker’s Garden of Imagination’


A substantial part of the past week has been spent numbering, titling and signing freshly minted copies of The Heavens Declare (1) and (2) in readiness for the final days of the Goldfields Printmakers group exhibition, The Printmaker’s Garden of Imagination

Sold copies of the linocuts can be collected from the gallery at the end of the last day of the show, Sunday 25 September, or, unless other arrangements have been made, they will be posted to their new owners early next week.

The response to these prints, the first of a planned suite, has been hugely gratifying and encouraging. They will also form part of a future artist book. I’ve even received an advance order for it from a rare book collector. Fortunately he is in no rush!
