The Columbian has landed

This exceptional (1857) Columbian printing press has just joined the Swan River Print Studio presses! Needless to say, we are over the moon. Its a beauty… and a relief print-maker’s dream.

Melville on Show: Katie Glaskin

The City of Melville has launched a series of exhibitions running from February to November 2021 called Melville on Show,  showcasing the talents of Melville artists.

I am delighted to have been invited to be the first artist featured in the Melville on Show series.

My Numbat series was recently acquired for the City of Melville Art Collection and you can view these prints in the ground floor foyer of the City Council (City of Melville, 10 Almondbury Road, Booragoon, next to Garden City) along with a wider selection of my prints. On the second floor of the building (where the annual Melville Art Award has usually been held) you will find 22 of my paintings from two of my series: my Extinction series, and my Denmark series.

The exhibition runs from 28 Jan – end of March, and you can visit it Mon-Fri between 9-5pm.
