The Hawkesbury Regional Gallery will launch its new exhibition ‘Origin: The Place where Something Begins’, on Friday, 28 June 2024.

Leading the major printmaking exhibition is the Sydney Printmakers, a 60-member group that aims to develop its artists’ work and the promotion and education on printmaking. The printmaking showcase will end on Sunday, 18 August.

The Gallery says the Origin exhibition explores the different interpretations of the term ‘origin’:

“In the exhibition, each member has extended their print practice – both conceptually and in media – to reflect the zeitgeist of the print medium,” the Hawkesbury Gallery says.

“This exhibition pays homage to traditional printmaking practices using etching, woodblock and lithography while also extending an investigation into contemporary hybrid forms of printmaking with monoprints, unique state prints, photopolymer and new digital technologies.”

On 18 July, locals can listen to the printmakers’ thoughts and chat on ‘Artists in Conversation’ and attend a $75 Lino Printing workshop with artist Cheryle Yin Lo on 3 August.

It succeeds the NewQuilt exhibition, a moment to see quilts as an artistic medium, which began its stay at the Gallery in early May.

The Hawkesbury Regional Gallery is located at 300 George Street, First floor, Deerubbin Centre at Windsor, NSW 2756. For more details, visit hawkesburygallery.eventbrite.com.
