Print Commission 2019

The Print Council of Australia is proud to announce the 2019 edition of our annual Print Commission, with seven new works by contemporary artists chosen from over a hundred applications.

Now in its sixth decade, the Print Commission is Australia’s best opportunity to start and grow a collection of contemporary works on paper. Major public institutions and private collectors across the country and internationally subscribe to the Print Commission to build their collections, and all PCA members receive discounted advance subscriptions.

The PCA Print Commission is a significant initiative aimed at fostering the creation of new work in print media and promoting the development of Australian printmaking, while also raising funds for the organisation and supporting artists’ professional development. The Print Council thanks our judges for 2019, Maria Zagala, Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, and Alice Clanachan, Assistant Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, from the Art Gallery of South Australia


The Print Council of Australia gratefully acknowledges the support of Arthouse Direct and Magnani 1404 as sponsors of the 2019 Print Commission program.
