Art is full steam ahead

Geraldton Guardian - - The Sauce -

Ex­tra­or­di­nary gi­ant prints will go on dis­play at the Arts and Cul­tural Devel­op­ment Coun­cil’s com­mu­nity gallery this Fri­day for the launch of the Hard Pressed ex­hi­bi­tion.

Hard Pressed launched in 2016 af­ter lo­cal artist Lizzy Robin­son dis­cov­ered the world of steam­roller print­ing, a process whereby de­signs on large-scale wood­cuts are printed with a roller.

This year, more than 20 Mid West artists cre­ated gi­ant wood­cuts and 60 small boards were given out to com­mu­nity mem­bers.

The print­ing took place dur­ing the Sun­shine Fes­ti­val on Sunday and Monday at the Ger­ald­ton fore- shore.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will also feature prints from Esper­ance, Ravens- thorpe/Hopetoun and Kather­ine in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory.

Hard Pressed will be on dis­play un­til October 29.
