New Ground... Six amazing printmakers...

New Ground_ Singular Impressions_ Escapism launch 125

Town Hall Gallery is all about printmaking until the end of February!  Our current exhibitions Singular Impressions by Wayne Viney and New Ground, highlight a diverse range of printmaking styles.

New Ground features six amazing printmakers including:  Elizabeth Banfield, Tiziano Bellomi, Anita Iacovella, Jenny Peterson, Bronwyn Rees and Andrew Totman.  This exhibition is curated by Town Hall Gallery and is definitely a feast for the eyes with artist books, etchings, monotypes and linocut works. New Ground celebrates what is happening in the world of printmaking currently.

If you are wanting to discover more about contemporary printmaking, several of the exhibiting artists will be discussing their works on Saturday 1 February from 2pm in the gallery.  However, if you are wanting to try your hand at linocut printing, Elizabeth Banfield will be showing you the tricks of the trade during a workshop to be held on Saturday 8 February.  Cost is $40 or $25 concession. Elizabeth's linocuts are incredible and we are sure that you will come out with some fantastic work.

A complimentary catalogue is available including artist bios and a wonderful essay by our Assistant Curator, Kent Wilson.  You can pick up a copy inside the gallery.

New Ground is in gallery 1 and 2 until Sunday 23 February, 2014.
