What is so special about this exhibition? Read on to find out more.
Toxic materials are in common use in traditional printmaking. However, these materials can leave toxic 'traces' in the printmaker and ultimately in the environment. Warringah Printmakers Studio is a community based, non-profit organisation, striving to promote safer printmaking techniques and environmentally sound work practices. With their commitment to reduce the effects on artists and printmakers' health and the impact on the environment brought about by their art practices, the Warringah Printmakers Studio has introduced safer printmaking techniques as an alternative way to produce intaglio and relief prints.
Drawing on the Studio's culmination of 15 years of safer printmaking, this exhibition shows an amazing array of artworks from both established and emerging artists. As the name of the exhibition suggests, the Studio aims to 'take nothing but inspiration and leave nothing but prints' through the introduction of environmentally sound work practices.
Additionally, a number of public programs are held on Sundays at the Gallery between 22 July and 2 September. You can join the artist floor talks and get an insight from their print demonstration. All these programs are free.
