Goldfields Printmakers, 16Apr-25May, Kerikeri

Art at Wharepuke presents The Goldfields Printmakers 'Borders and Crossings'
16 April until 25 May, with an opening event on Wednesday 16 April from 5-7pm
Contributing artists James Pasakos and Anne Langdon will be attending the opening event.

The Goldfields Printmakers is an exciting new group of artists
living in the Goldfields region of Victoria, Australia, who predominantly work in field of printmaking.

James Pasakos (a Printmaking lecturer at the Federation University of Australia, Ballarat)
was a co-founder of the group.
"This group was born from an idea; a eureka moment that I had 
whilst participating in the IMPACT 7 international printmaking conference in Melbourne in 2011. 
My concept was to bring together printmakers from the historic and significant Goldfields region and 
to provide a portal through which dialogue and diversity can evolve in a supportive and enriching environment".

The exhibition was first displayed at the Art Gallery of Ballarat May to July 2013,
and in August 2013 travelled to Dundee, Scotland, for IMPACT 8.
Having crossed and re-crossed borders,
Art at Wharepuke is pleased to now present the show to a New Zealand audience.
