QG&W is located in Victoria on the Bellarine Peninsula’s coastal town of Queenscliff with a focus on printmaking and other works on paper. QG&W proudly shows the work of over 70 Australian artists/printmakers. As well as operating the gallery space, QG&W also offers art and printmaking workshops and printmaking studio access.
QG&W exhibiting artist, Graeme Peebles, is Australia’s leading mezzotint printmaker. Graeme studied and lectured at RMIT and is a multi-award-winner in his field with his work collected privately and by institutions around the world. Being a purist, Graeme’s print method is traditional and in keeping with a process taught over past centuries. Graeme has over 40 years of printmaking knowledge and experience and is highly regarded amongst his peers.
Together, we have established a significant print prize that is representative of the highest level of printmaking in Australia, solely focused on the intaglio technique.
Preliminary judging by Gordon Craig (University of Queensland & Print Council Australia committee member), Peter Lancaster (Lancaster Press) and Graeme Peebles. Finalist judge is Hertha Kluge-Pott.
