A relaxed scene at the Ghunmarn Art Centre in Beswick (new building works taking place in the background will add a new exhibition space and cafe) during Basil’s workshop for Djilpin Arts this week. 20 new etching plates will make up Gapu Series VII, continuing ten years’ of collaborative printmaking between Basil Hall Editions and the Beswick mob. Eleven artists scratched or brushed in their images (hard ground and sugar lift), as Basil etched and aquatinted their plates under the shade of the deck (seen here). The prints will be editioned in Braidwood and framed and exhibited at the next Walking with Spirits Festival in Beswick in July.
