Aky van Ogtrop opening 'Elements'

Southern Highlands Printmakers Exhibition at Sturt Gallery

Southern Highlands Printmakers Exhibition at Sturt Gallery

Hot on the heels of the Nowra exhibition both Marianne Courtenay and Kathy Orton had work in the Southern Highlands Printmakers’ exhibition, Elements, which was opened on Sunday 10th February at Sturt Gallery by Akky van Ogtrop, President of the Print Council of Australia. I think this was the strongest show the group has had for quite some time.  One of the most interesting things for me was the presence of a number of three dimensional pieces. Sandra Shrubb, Tony Deigan, Slavica Zivkovic, Britta Stenmanns and Jan Hanrahan all had work that showed different ways of taking prints ‘out of the frame’.

They’ll be a review of the show by free lance curator Gillian McCracken in the Winter edition of Imprint, the journal of the Print Council of Australia.  Keep an eye out for it.
