ArtWeek is coming to Auckland from 11-20 October.
I just read that ArtWeek organisers are inviting people to contribute
to a conversation about the exhibitions associated with ArtWeek.
Now is your chance to review an exhibition you find interesting
(whether it takes your fancy or not)
or to comment on exhibitions and the visual arts in New Zealand
with a short article (200-600 words).
Winning entries selected by the ArtWeek panel of judges
— The best piece of writing each month wins a 2 year subscription to Art News.
— The best writing for the quarter wins editorial space in Art News next issue.
It is great to have this opportunity for us to dialogue about printmaking here in NZ,
so lets also take an opportunity to share our thoughts and ideas about printmaking with others.

Here are a few exhibitions that you may like to 'review':
Corban Estate Arts Centre, until 20 October
Kim Lowe is an artist and printmaker of New Zealand Chinese and Pakeha descent.
Lowe’s latest exhibition features prints that allude to a fabricated family narrative
based loosely on past events and snippets of her family's mixed history.
|Kim Lowe, Making Waves with Clouds and Rain, 2013|
Seed Gallery, Newmarket, from 9-26 October
John Pusateri’s manipulated (sometimes obliterated) images of birds
comment on the complex history of animal preservation, speciation and extinction.
He highlights the irony of living things destroyed in order
that they are better known, catalogued, and preserved.
|John Pusateri, Night, Night, Night, Day|
Mairangi Arts Centre, 9 October to 9 Novenber
This exhibition showcases printmaking from artists across New Zealand.
Black Asterisk, 11 - 31 October
International award winning printmaker Prue MacDougall presents 30 solar-plate etchings
created for her solo exhibition in Cadaques, Spain, earlier this year.
|Prue MacDougall, Unicorn, 2013|
