2013 Print Council of Australia Print Commission Launch
Art Est. Gallery is pleased to host the launch of the Print Council of Australia's 2013 Print Commission. The exhibition will feature print artists from across Australia as well as artist talks, demonstrations and print making classes for kids and adults. The Print Council of Australia’s annual print subscription provides an easy low-cost way to build a collection of quality fine art prints by emerging and established artists. Each year the Print Council commissions 10 selected artists to print a limited edition of prints for sale to subscribers to the program. Print Council commissioned prints are found in significant collections throughout Australia such as public art museums, galleries and schools as well as individual collections.
The 2013 Print Commission artists are: Andrew Antoniou (NSW), Kim Barter (VIC), Helen Clarke (WA), Kevin Foley (VIC), Margaret Genever (QLD), Vesna Klačar-Nedimović (QLD), Christine Lawry (VIC), Ben Reid (NZ), Annika Romeyn (ACT) and Lin Tobias (VIC).
