New Printed art exhibition for Atherton

The Old Post Office Gallery in Atherton has a new exhibition opening on September 30.

Titled “From the Printroom”, The Tableland Region Art Society printing group (TRASinkers) will be showcasing an array of works and print techniques such as chine collie, key block cuts, reduction lino cuts, monoprints, stencil and hand printing on fabric.

Marion Clarkson who is the President of the Tablelands Region Art Society said that there will be 13 artists exhibiting their print works.

“All the artists are from the Tablelands and most of the prints will be for sale,” she said.

“Unfortunately due to COVID, we can’t have an official opening party or ceremony.”

The group of printers benefitted from a Community Gambling Fund Grant last year which enabled the refurbishment of the Art Society’s print room at the Old Primary School Community Centre as well as the presentation of workshops on drypoint and mokulito techniques.

The gallery is open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 2pm and entry is free.

Despite COVID, the group still holds workshops and members continue to develop their skills with the support of experienced printer Maryke Dobe, the Print Room Coordinator.

Beginners are welcome and for more information email trasinc4@gmail.com
