The world of print

There's a lot going on in the print world this month.  Locally, there are two exhibitions which celebrate print making and prints in general.
The Baldessin Studio 10th Anniversary Exhibition starts at the Light Factory Gallery today and runs until 9 October.  George Baldessin was a leading Australian artist in the 1970s who died tragically in a car accident in 1978.  The Baldessin Press (a not for profit organisation) was established by his widow Tess Edwards at their St Andrews studio in 2001.  Tess and other founding members Robert Hails, Lloyd Godman and Silvi Glattauer (all practising artists) will feature their work as well as their star pupils from the studio as part of this exhibition.  The Light Factory Gallery is located at 21 Brougham St Eltham and is open Wednesday to Sunday 11 am - 4.30 pm.

Entry to both exhibitions is free.
