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!
