PRINTS FROM STUDIO ONE, 1987 – 1996: FROM THE COLLECTION OF BASIL HALL
OFFICIAL OPENING: Friday 2 February, 6pm
EXHIBITION SHOWING: 2 February – 28 March
AFTERNOON TEA WITH BASIL: Saturday 24 February, 2-3pm
Studio One Printmaking Workshop was a dynamic access and editioning studio in Kingston. It was founded by Dianne Fogwell and Meg Buchanan in 1982 and operated until 2000 under a number of Directors, including Basil Hall, who ran the studio from 1987-1996. During this exciting period numerous Canberra printmakers honed their craft, many following degrees at Canberra School of Art, but many more learning etching, lithography and relief printing for the first time as access users and class members. Studio One’s facilities complemented those at Megalo, where silkscreen printing equipment was available for access use. In addition to classes, school holiday programs and weekend workshops, Studio One also offered an editioning services to artists Australia-wide.
This exhibition, drawn from Basil Hall’s boxes of Printer’s Proofs and mementoes, includes prints by Mandy Martin, Jorg Schmeisser, Paul Peisley, George Gittoes, Raymond Arnold, Garry Shead, Pamela Challis, Bob Russell, GW Bot, Chris Denton, Dianne Fogwell, Julie Bradley, Sylvia and Tony Convey and many, many more!
This exhibition beckons you to immerse yourself in the unique beauty and diversity of a
special area, offering a fresh perspective on the natural world.
Drew Truslove’s ink drawings present a striking portrayal of the landscape, capturing ever-
changing views from a single vantage point.
Mark Rowden contributes to the dialogue with his lino prints and prints of natural foliage,
adding a new dimension to the exhibition.
“Line and Leaf: Impressions of the Gully” aims to not only showcase the local area’s beauty
but also shed light on its historical and cultural significance.
Open the 7th to the 25th February, 10am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
Selected-a curated Photography & Printmaking exhibition
72 Erskine Street Sydney
1st Feb -3rd March 2024
Selected is an opportunity to see into the practice of 22 contemporary artist exploring and thriving in using the medias of Printmaking and Photography across 52 images on display.
Curated by Andy Totman, the show features Sydney Printmakers members Anthea Boesenberg, Rafael Butron, Ben Rak, Jenny Robinson, Mark Rowden, Gary Shinfield, and Anne Starling.
Photography and printmaking are similar in that they both have the capability to reproduce an image multiple times with very little variation in the resulting print. However, photography came about through the desire to create exact visual replicas of forms and scenes without manual intervention, while printmaking originally aided the production of photographic illustrations in books by providing a stronger, non-light sensitive ink. Despite this, the two can exist harmoniously together, and photography provides a whole spectrum of new techniques for the printmaker to use in their artworks.

Drawing on material from UNSW Records & Archives, Protests & Pranks traces a history of student-led protests and Foundation Day pranks at UNSW. The exhibition features posters, photos, videos, oral histories, and protest ephemera, including badges, t-shirts, and pamphlets.
Some of us might recognise ourselves in these photographs!
26 February – 14 June 2024
Level 5 Main Library
UNSW Records & Archives
Protests & Pranks, for the first time, will span all three UNSW Libraries. At UNSW Main Library, the exhibition shifts between global and hyperlocal protest movements. Protests & Pranks reveals how students mobilise to effect change, from the worldwide campaigns against the Vietnam War to student demonstrations in response to university policies. UNSW Law Library features tactical frivolity, the playful, non-compliant side of student resistance that manifested in pranks and stunts designed to provoke and challenge authority. The display at UNSW Paddington Library contains materials from recent climate rallies and political demonstrations to show how students utilise protests as a form of activism to bring about reform.
The exhibition features photos, videos, oral histories, newspaper clippings, and protest ephemera, including posters, badges, and pamphlets. These materials help to piece together the shared concerns, movements, and cultural identity of UNSW.
Accessibility: UNSW Main Library, UNSW Law Library, and UNSW Paddington Library are wheelchair accessible. The exhibition will include large-text artwork labels and booklets, audio-described guides, and braille exhibition guides.
Lotte, 100 years – Remembering and Celebrating
Price$18 AUD + BF Get tickets
Thu 14th Dec 2023, 6:45 pm – 8:00 pm
45 St Pauls St, Randwick NSW 2031
Join us and share a glass of wine as we celebrate what would have been Lotte’s 100th birthday. To honour her memory, the Weiss family is hosting a screening of the film My Two Lives, which explores the remarkable story of Lotte, her survival, tenacity, and resilience, despite undergoing incredible trauma. We will also hear of the progress on the legacy projects that the family has dedicated in her honour.
Lotte Weiss was a Holocaust survivor. She never forgot the horrors of her three years of internment at Auschwitz and Birkenau. Yet it is her immense life force that propelled her through the torture and devastation that enveloped her. Her inherent integrity and morality remained steadfast. It was her capacity for goodness, kindness, forgiveness, and love which never faltered throughout the misery and beatings she endured, to give her the strength and the will to survive. This is her story interpreted by artist Thea Weiss
Janet Parker-Smith Wicked Garden | 24 November 2023 – 8 January 2024
The work in this installation reconfigures found materials from our urban landscape and repurposes prints from the artists collection from over the past 30 years. Look and you might see recognisable materials from everyday life that have been transformed into new creatures, objects and forms.
Using different art forms including collage, printmaking, digital print, ceramics, knitting and textiles combined with chattels from the everyday, these materials come together to create an artwork known as the ‘Wicked Garden’. Showing a flight of imagination it looks at ideas around our changing environment, friendships and adapting to new surroundings.
