'Thinking of Place' ToP - Post Office Gallery, Arts Academy-Federation University Australia-Ballarat
ToP was a concept brought forward by Laurel McKenzie from the Inkmasters in Cairns QLD. It originated in Dundee-Scotland (IMPACT8 - Borders & Crossings) as the other key participants and organisers for ToP all met up and connected. This is an international travelling exhibition of works. It has taken a lot of time to organise and from the Goldfields Printmakers we wish to thank Laurel McKenzie from the Inkmasters, Antonietta Covino-Beehre (Melbourne-Printmakers) Prue McDougall (North Island Printmakers-NZ) and Kim Lowe (the Wai Pounamu Printmakers NZ) for making it happen.
Diana Orinda Burns is real quality. She has been a practicing printmaker for many years, working with many fantastic artists across Australia. Over the years she has set up a successful studio 'Studio Paradiso' where she teaches printmaking techniques to her members - students alike. This exhibition is a result of what makes Diana unique, congratulations to you and the artists participating in the exhibition. From all of us ... The Goldfields Printmakers.
This exhibition was the creation of one of our GP printmaker Josephine Walsh. It had taken lots of energy and sometime to organise the exhibition. Each artist who contributed and participated was thoughtful in their approach and in result a great exhibition was the outcome - congratulations Josephine.
