PRINTMAKERS from the Coffs Coast and the New England Tablelands are joining forces to present a themed exhibition on middle ground at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre.
Titled 'Rainforest - Worlds Within', all the artworks will be on display from July 6, until August 29, all works on display are for sale.
A unique feature of the exhibition and the collaboration is the inclusion of a rainforest themed print exchange between the groups.
Members of each group are contributing an edition of prints for which they will receive a set made up of other contributed art.
The artists have set about creating new works of art based on their responses to the rainforest and the worlds that lie within it.
The exhibition features all original handmade prints rendered in a variety of methods, including etching, engraving and linocut.
