Nature’s Rhythms

Nature’s Rhythms

6th Sep 2017 - 1st Oct 2017

The exhibition’s title  Nature’s Rhythms  is intentionally very broad and Printbank artists may include in their art works - responses to the strength of cyclones, the tranquility of a tiny creek’s water flow, the changing seasons, or the waves on a shore line.

It may be the repetitive sound of rain on a roof, gentle breezes, night and day or animal’s movements. Leaf shapes, bark patterns, life cycles, or other rhythms related to nature may also be depicted.

A variety of printing techniques will be used by Printbank artists:- including unique mono-prints, relief printing using wood-cuts, wood engravings and lino-cuts, as well as collograpy, intaglio, engraving, drypoint, etching, and aquatint.

The artists’ interpretations of the Nature’s Rhythms and their chosen printing methods should result in a very interesting and diverse display of artworks.

Printbank’s exhibition will be available for viewing from Wednesday, September 6 to Sunday, October 1 at the Lagoons Gallery within the Botanic Gardens Café.

Opening hours are Wednesday to Friday 9am – 3pm and weekends 8am – 4pm.

Meet the Artists > Saturday, September 16 from 2pm – 4pm.

Please RSVP for catering by Wednesday, September 13. Phone or text Maya on 0436 331 009 or email maya.in.nature@gmail.com
