Summer IMPRINT out soon

The December issue of IMPRINT will be arriving in your letterboxes soon, so keep an eye out for it - and let us know if yours doesn't arrive within the next couple of weeks.

This issue has a Western Australian theme, and includes some great articles and profiles on WA print artists, plus reviews of the Fremantle Print Awards and Silk Cut Awards for Linocut 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.


So, if you're not a member and don't currently receive IMPRINT, sign up now and we'll send you the December issue hot off the press! You can download a PCA membership form here on the website.

The PCA has been travelling

PCA staff Sue Forster and Rachel Hancock have just returned from a busy trip to Western Australia. Last Thursday we were at Gallery East in North Fremantle for the launch of the 2012 commissioned prints - thanks to everyone involved and Gallery East for hosting a great opening night!

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.

Visit to the Curtin University printmaking department



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!
