    Prints, Pottery & Impressions25 August - 1 October 2017

    This exhibition displays artworks developed from the 2017 PressNorth Printmakers artist in residence program by Margaret Crawford. The artist undertook a three month residency in the Studio Downstairs at Umbrella Studio. Crawford’s artwork has predominately been inspired by North Queensland environs. In this body of work she has used iconic images of landmarks, birds and flowers of Townsville. Her impressions have been produced using both print and pottery. The pottery has been designed and produced to complement the prints in this exhibition. Opening Launch: 6pm Friday 25 August 2017
