Waiprint 2016


Printmakers take note: the entry date for WAIPRINT is Thursday, 14 July (a week earlier than announced in the May newsletter). Apologies for changing the date (and setting it so far in advance of the exhibition!) but we have to supply the details to ArtsPost three weeks before the opening. Remember, the actual work is due 1 August, the Monday before the opening.
