The Print Council of Australia (PCA) is a national not-for-profit member organisation that promotes contemporary Australian fine art printmaking and print media, including artist books, zines and works on paper, and provides support and advocacy for artists.
Through publications, commissioned editions, exhibitions and other events we work to foster a greater appreciation of original prints and a knowledge of the history of Australian printmaking amongst our members, collectors and the wider community.
In 2016 the PCA celebrates our fiftieth anniversary with the YEAR OF PRINT, a nationwide program of exhibitions, symposia, talks and events.
