The 2012 Print Commission packing day went really well ... many thanks to the volunteers who gave up a good part of their Saturday to help us out! All prints have now been sent out to subscribers - we hope you love them and they give you years of enjoyment.
If you're an emerging or established artist working in print media, now is the time to apply for the 2013 Print Commissioning. If you're not sure how the process works, there's information here on the website and you can download the application form from the Print Commission page. Applications close on Friday 8 February 2013.
We've had some more great work sent in by members during October, and here are a few of them. They're up on our Facebook page too ... if you'd like to promote the work you're doing let us know and we'll share it with the world!
If you're a member, email your favourite print as JPEG to firstname.lastname@example.org

The schedule on Friday was packed and despite the howling gale and teeming rain we had a really good day. Many thanks to Susanna Castleden for showing us around the print studios at Curtin University, and introducing us to some of the PhD students. It was great to see their work and get a feel for what emerging printmakers are doing in the West.

The PCA committee meeting was across town at Edith Cowan University in their printmaking department - thanks to the team there for hosting, and showing us the studios. It was great to meet so many WA members at these events and we're looking forward to hearing more about what's happening in the west ... so keep the emails coming!
