January 2024

TIDELINES The Tidelines exhibition has been very well-received, with many art sales, so we extend our congratulations to every artist who has contributed to the exhibition, and gratitude to those who have supported it! Given its success, we are extending the (slightly modified) exhibition to 2 March. Sold works will go to their new homes and artists will supply some brand new replacements! Tidelines II will (re)open with a social event on Thursday, 1 February at 6pm, where three of our exhibiting artists - Marjorie Raetz, Shari Nye and Lotti Dumesny - will discuss their practice and methods. Refreshments will be provided. You're all invited! Please RSVP HERE.


Coming up at Glyph:

Following Tidelines, our March exhibition is being brought to us by the wonderful people at Grampians Arts! 'Impressed' will be an exhibition of works produced at the Grampians Arts workshops. Printmakers from Basil Hall’s Summer Brushes or Gary Shinfield’s Grampians Brushes workshops have been invited to submit artworks created during those workshops, or using techniques learned in those workshops - including collagraphy (printing from a sealed collage plate), etched linoleum and woodcut. Basil’s recent workshop culminated in a 2.1m long collaborative print (pictured) in which each participant created a plate that lined up with its neighbouring plate, producing a stunning landscape image, reminiscent of a rural journey.

Volunteers needed for Workshops:

Thank you to all our current volunteers who have kept the place running as smoothly as you have - we couldn't do it without you! We are currently on the lookout for people who might be interested in assisting on a Workshops sub-committee. This would include building an exciting workshop calendar, and assisting with the delivery/implementation of workshops. Please contact us if you are interested.


New artist on board:

We are thrilled to welcome Rob Cosby as a new artist exhibiting at Glyph. Rob Cosby is a talented printmaker, usually working in linocut (see images).
