Megalo’s 25th

25 x 25

The 25 x 25 exhibition presents the work of 25 artist-printmakers who have made prints in the workshops of Studio One and Megalo Access Arts.

It reveals the range of media that encompass the field of printmaking from screen-printing, through etching, lithography, woodblock and linocut printing.

The exhibition was conceived to celebrate Megalo’s 25th year as an open access print

studio in 2005. The artists were selected to represent Megalo’s past, present and future. Each was asked to produce a print, 25 x 25 cm square, on any theme and in the medium of their choice.

The exhibition is complemented by a colour catalogue that features an account of the history of Megalo and Studio One by art historian Sasha Grishin. It devotes two pages to each artist allowing them to provide a statement about their experience with the
print workshops and a page for the reproduction of their print.

The exhibition was conceived and curated by Megalo’s Artistic Manager, Paul Peisley
