'The Magic of Printmaking' is an exhibition of magical effects obtained through diverse printing techniques. The exploration of a diverse group of seven artists resulted in an exhibition that offers endless possibilities of this magic in a wide variety of both artistic prints and beautiful, useful fabric and pottery objects.
"Subtle and exciting textures, sharp contrasts, fine detail, and the amazing gradients and patterns of colours will demonstrate the fascination of printmaking." Doesn't that sound worth a trip to Bribie?

The centerpiece relates to the Green Man. which goes back to the first century AD, when decorative artists developed a playful tradition in which little people were seen hiding amongst leaves and turning into leaves. Come and see a continuation of this tradition via seven very different interpretations of the theme.
