The opening of our special exhibition of Australian and Irish printmakers was held on Saturday 5th April 2014. Approximately 8o people were in attendance to enjoy the variety of works on show. Bevan Shepherd welcomed all to the gallery and thanked all the artists for their participation. Anne Virgo – Director of The Australian Print Workshop presented an opening speech. Anne referred to the different print processes that were on show in the exhibition and made reference to the collaboration that is strong amongst printmakers and that this international exhibition was an example of such collaboration.
