About Print Circle: Established in 1970, the Print Circle is a group of women artists who are dedicated to printmaking. The group was formed at the Workshop Arts Centre in Willoughby, Sydney; our vision, to encourage experimental and innovative techniques and to support and exhibit the work of women printmakers. Our members currently produce limited edition prints in various traditional media including etching, lithography, silkscreen printing, collagraphy, woodcut and linocut as well as solar plate intaglio and digital prints. Other media include monoprints, installations, assemblages and artist books, as well as mixed media monotypes, reflective of contemporary printmaking practice. A number of PRINT CIRCLE artists will be present at the opening in Katoomba. More works on view at REX-LIVINGSTON PROJECTS on facebook

Three of our esteemed Printmakers are exhibiting with this show. Here are some shots from the opening. Thank you Mei Zhao for providing us with these photos.
Suzanne Shelley has been to Pentimenti at Wollongong, the Italian Consulate and now Hazelhurst.
Suzanne and Laura, an exhibiting artist, have seen all three exhibition spaces and it would be great to hear there thoughts on the different apaces and how they lend themselves to the display of the prints.
