It's lovely to see people appreciating "Wallflowers" in photos from the opening of InkMasters. It would have been wonderful to have made it to Cairns for the opening, and it's on my bucket list to get up for the next Inkfest in 2018. Here's a brief description of this years judges and participants, as well as an online link to the catalogue.
"Inkmasters Print Exhibition 2016 is the third biennial InkFest international print show. Launched by Craig Crawford MLA Cairns and Akky van Ogtrop President of the PCA delivered a public lecture prior to the launch and also awarded the prizes. Prints from 86 artists from 25 countries were selected including local and regional printmakers both indigenous and non indigenous. A total of 330 prints were submitted and 100 selected. Also on display are two complementary exhibitions - prints from the InkFest Artists-in-Residence and New Prints from InkFest workshops. Thanks to all the artists who participated and warm congratulations to the prize winners:
