About
Exhibition: Press GangThe 2018 Printmakers’ Association of WA Inc.(PAWA) Member’s Exhibition is set to be an inspiring and broad foray into the field of contemporary print media.

PAWA's aims are to embrace new technologies whilst creating a thriving environment in which traditional printmaking skills are highly valued.

The Exhibition will display a diverse selection of the arts prints and print media techniques, and attract the interest of a wide audience.

Exhibition Opening Summary:

Elizabeth Morrison (PAWA’s President)
“We have chosen the title Press Gang to infer the fellowship we find as a group creating fine art prints. As members of PAWA part of the mandate is that all works exhibited must have an element of hand printing. This of course leaves many options available and many traditional and contemporary techniques are on display.

The Press Gang opening drew a crowd of 120 people on a beautiful Kalamunda afternoon. As a group we are very proud to showcase the fine standard of printmaking that occurs in this vast state."

Press Gang, the 2018 PAWA Members’ Exhibition celebrates the comradery of our association of printmakers from throughout Western Australia

The Printmakers’ Association of Western Australia has a diverse membership of 150 artists from across WA.  PAWA holds an annual members exhibition which this year is being held at Zig Zag Gallery in the Kalamunda Cultural Precinct.  

As PAWA members professional artists and those just beginning their creative journey are encouraged in experimentation and excellence in printmaking.  The Press Gang exhibition showcases the diverse work of contemporary printmakers with the aim of promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of prints.
