Your inky news May

This month I had the best time visiting Cape Town and meeting a number of the fiercely talented CT TPGs. I loved seeing their beautiful studio spaces and homes, and enjoyed sharing meals and coffees with them. I came away from the experience feeling so proud of our community we have built. 

The heart of TPG has always been to be a community of print lovers, sharing spaces and cups of coffee! We are so lucky to have this group of talented and passionate printmakers. Each and every one of the TPGs brings a unique story and dynamic to the group. Each voice has a space and a place and can be celebrated.

For the last few months, we have all been planning and working in our studios in preparation for the second part of the year: EXHIBITION SEASON. Seeing all the long hours come together with submissions for exhibitions rolling into my inbox, I am so encouraged by the work and vision of the TPGs. 

So, get ready for what promises to be a spectacular exhibition season, our most ambitious one yet! Six fabulous venues, six beautifully curated shows – six reasons to celebrate being a TPG (or, of course, a friend of TPG!)

Keep printing!
