Departing from its pre-war status as craft or an illustration for a book, printmaking in the 1960s and 70s became an important platform for communicating visual information to a mass audience and was for the first time placed alongside painting and sculpture as a main form of artistic expression. Displaying prints from prominent artists from this time such as Barbara Hanrahan, George Baldessin and John Olsen, this exhibition provides a glimpse of the artistic transformations that occurred throughout this pivotal era.

Join us for a Twilight Tour of this exhibition on Thursday 21 February starting at 5.30pm. This is a free event and all are welcome | RSVP to the Gallery by Tuesday 19 February 2019.

Exhibition on display 15 December to 10 March 2019.
