A Canopy of Leaves  February 1 - April 1 2023
A selection of works by 11 artists from around Australia. A diverse range of printmaking showcasing established and emerging artists. Our biggest show yet with more than 100 prints on show - not counting the works in the print cradles!

An exhibition, workshop and studio space dedicated to printmaking in its many forms. We aim to provide printmakers and collectors with exciting opportunities and to make a strong contribution to the cultural life of New England.  The gallery has now  reached its sixth exhibition, Artist's Choice, and looking forward to a solid program of exhibitions embracing artists and print works from around the country.
