Happy new year from the PCA!

I hope you all had a great start to the new year and are already having a happy and productive 2013.

In at PCA central we've got a heap of things planned for the year including a member survey that we're developing now and planning to release in the next week or two. The Familiar Unfamiliar touring exhibition is going up to Swan Hill next week and will be opening at the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery on 24 January. We're finalising strategic planning for the next 3 years, which will include planning our 50th anniversary celebrations for 2016 - that sounds like a long way off but the way the years fly past it's just around the corner! We're also well underway with the next edition of Imprint, and planning the 2013 Print Commission.

A reminder that the deadline for sending content in for the Autumn edition of Imprint is Friday 18 January and the deadline for booking advertising is Friday 25 January.

... and if you miss the advertising deadline for Imprint you can always advertise through our monthly e-newsletter. Just email us for details.

Next up, a look at last month's featured prints ...

In the technical pages you'll find information on the types of papers to use for various print techniques and how to develop digital tusche washes for photoplate lithography ... and a heap of other print related news.
