Printmakers@Geelong, or should I say one printmaker in particular, has been busy researching a permanent home for the Printmakers where they can gain open studio access.
From the feedback received, it seems the use of a larger press would be most desirable.
Shortly, a meeting of interested parties will be called to ascertain the amount of enthusiasm for this idea and the formation of an Artists Run Initiative.
This is the building being looked at. It is part of a 14acre past woollen mill site in North Geelong. The interior is 100 square metres and as you can see, it has that grungy, industrial look. Great access, great parking. Water and power. Also toilet facilities just behind the yellow crates.
WATCH THIS SPACE.
