News, upcoming member exhibitions and opportunities from the Print Council of Australia

Newsletter #9 - 12 December 2012

This will be the last newsletter for 2012 so I wanted to send out a big thank you to all members and print commission subscribers for your support of the PCA during 2012 - and welcome to anyone who's joined over the past few months.

From next year we'll be going monthly with the newsletter and opening it to the public so that we can promote the work you're doing to the widest possible audience. If you'd like to let people know about your exhibitions, workshops and print-related news please send me an email - Rachel Hancock, General Manager PCA.

The PCA office will be closed for holidays from Thursday 20 December to Monday 7 January ... we hope you all have a great festive season and look forward to catching up with you again in the New Year!

CPM National Print Awards - updated link

In the last newsletter we included a couple of links for information about the CPM/Tweed River Print Awards ... but they didn't work particularly well. I've been given an updated link, so try this one for more information!

Interesting things ...

Colossal talent

I'm sure many of you have already come across Colossal - a blog about art and visual ingenuity, but for those of you who don't know it ... they showcase some amazing art across a range of traditional and new media from around the world. It's definitely worth checking out if you have some spare time.

Dizbe community

I also came across this interesting new web-based 'creative marketplace' recently and thought some of you might be interested ... is building a community of artists and giving them the tools they need to sell work online, including social media promotion, professional profile, referral rewards to cover commission and internet brand consulting. It's free to apply so have a look at the website for more information.

Crowdfunding with Pozible

Enterprising PCA member Leonie Connellan is using Pozible crowdfunding to raise funds for an exhibition next year ...  "I've raised just over a third of my target at the moment. I'm trying to raise funds for a show of etching and letterpress prints I'm having at the Mission to Seafarers Dome Gallery in April/May next year."

Today's the last day to donate so check out the website if you're interested and think you can help!
