Event runs from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Daily, until 5/12/2021


This is a print exhibition unlike any other yet mounted in Australia. It demonstrates the dual power of material prints to embed or carry past time and stop time during our engagement with them. The full range of printmaking practices is represented, from ancient Mesopotamian images pressed in clay from cylinder seals to 3D printed contemporary works. Works included are from the Griffith University Art Museum, and the Newcastle Region Art Gallery, along with several private collections, and the addition of recent work by contemporary artists Ali Bezer, Blair Coffey, Ryan Presley, and Pamela See. Supported by Griffith University Art Museum and the Gordon Darling Foundation.
