Carole Shepheard Talk, 10 Nov, Hamilton

Just a reminder that next week the University of Waikato has a talk about printmaking
in their 'Demystifying the Arts' series, called 
SURFACE IMPRESSIONS: Contemporary Printmaking in Aotearoa
at 7pm on Thursday 10 November

Heather Bramwell will talk with New Zealand printmaker Carole Shepheard 
about the changes that have occurred in printmaking over the past two decades.

The artists will talk about the impact of new technologies
and the need for print to evolve, adapt and extend 
if it wishes to be part of contemporary debate. 

This does not mean a loss of tradition or convention, 
but a willingness to embrace new possibilities 
– both digital and autographic – 
that accommodate invention, challenge and risk. 
It is an exciting time for printmakers who wish to face these challenges 
openly, constructively and creatively.

It is being held at Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts 
at University of Waikato, Knighton Rd (Uni Gate 2b), Hamilton. 
Bar facility open from 5pm, $5 Entry Fee 

I'm sure it will be a very interesting talk, so I encourage you to go!
