Professor of Fine Art, University of the Arts, London

When: Friday 19 April 2013, 6-8pm
Where: the Reading Room, Fitzroy Town Hall

Professor Paul Coldwell is internationally recognised for his prints, book works, sculptures and installations. This illustrated talk will look at the relationship between printmaking and sculpture in his own work and in particular will discuss his current survey exhibition A Layered Practice - Paul Coldwell Graphic Works 1993-2012, with its themes of journeying, absence and loss and his engagement with old and new print technologies.

The Print Council will have limited edition prints from the archive available for purchase on the night.

RSVP by 17 April by email or ring the Print Council on 03 9416 0150
Entry by gold coin donation & refreshments provided.

And we have a winner!

A lucky PCA member from Tasmania has won our $100 gift voucher from Melbourne Etching Supplies for completing the survey. Thanks to everyone who took the time to provide us with feedback - it will be invaluable in our forward planning.

We're happy to promote your exhibitions, workshops and events so email me with the details and please remember to send images as JPEGs. The deadline for content for the next newsletter is close of business on Monday 8 April for publication on Wednesday 10 April.
