Welcome to WSA

This year at WSA 2019

NYAA 2019 - NATIONAL YOUTH ART AWARDS 2019 Exhibition on now until 18th August 2019

Waiprint 2019 - 18th July to 18th August 2019

This year our annual WSA printmaking exhibition turns 30! 

WAIPRINT will run at ArtsPost from 19 July to 19 August with the opening on Thursday, 18 July. Our guest artist is Toni Hartill, an accomplished printmaker from Auckland. Toni's part of the exhibition is called 'Field Notes' and features botanically themed prints and an artist’s book. Her works include linocut, monoprint, drypoint and collagraph techniques. 

One of Toni's special interests is artists' books and she has chosen to focus on books for her one-day workshop, 'Unfolding Ideas'. This will take the form of an introduction to various simple structures for books and a chance to play around with a lot of ideas. Because there will be no printmaking involved on the day, this workshop will suit a variety of art practices. Toni has a very busy exhibition schedule, so the workshop will take place on Saturday, 7 September, after WAIPRINT has closed. 

To get a feel for Toni's beautiful and innovative printmaking and artist’s books, have a look at her work at tonihartillart.blogspot.com, on Instagram at tonihartillart, or on Facebook at Toni Hartill.   

WAIPRINT entry forms are included with this newsletter. Hard copies are also available in the WSA office and in the Print Room. We hope that all WSA printmakers will submit work for the exhibition.

 Spaces for the workshop are limited. To register your interest in attending, please email Janice at jmeadows51@gmail.com.
