Prints out of the box

New Zealand printmakers are showcasing their work in New South Wales at Tweed River Art Gallery, in an exhibition titled Out of the Box. Out of the Box features a range of printmaking skills including mezzotint, etching, drypoint, woodcut, and digital printing techniques. The exhibition is proving popular with visitors to the Tweed region, according to gallery director Susi Muddiman. “We’ve got a really strong print-making community here and we’ve sold about three works already,” Muddiman said. The artists are represented by Solander Works on Paper Gallery in Wellington. Artist Vincent Drane will present a floor talk to the exhibition on January 29. The exhibition opens officially on January 28 and will continue through May 1.
