Well hello there & welcome to "Ipsg pages"our new studio & gallery blog . On reflection 2014 was a busy year indeed. Firstly to celebrate what has been & gone i invite you to view all that has happened in the past year at Impress. Having a new studio has meant we were able to accomodate our own exhibitions in our Impress Gallery. Massive shows such as Regenerate the inaugeral members show, Vie de Pacific a showcase of print works from Pacific rim countries, Vario + as well as the annual members show & various independant exhibitions have been shown successfully to a receptive audience. Partnering print related artist's talks, demonstrations & workshops ensured some exciting buzz during the opening festivities.
Our workshop programs have brought in new members & promoted the facility very well and our membership have started to inhabit the studio & use the myriad of presses to create prints. We have augmented the screenprinting area & are now monitoring its use by members in terms of work flow. The centre of the studio once empty now has a suitable work table & each specific area is coming into fruition. It's good to take a moment to stop & take it all in & to thank all the volunteers who as a community of die hard members made this happen. Lets celebrate & move on to an even more successful 2015.
