If anyone running a business in Australia delivered poor service or a faulty product to a customer they would be made accountable right? Not the telcos and NBN Australia! They seem exempt from this rule. I won't be the first person writing about my NBN transition issues and I certainly won't be the last. Our issues aren't worse or more important and this post won't solve my issue or anyone else's. The most I'll [...]

How did this exhibition come to fruition? After successfully restoring 11 of 12 plates and realising we would be able to edition Sir Arthur’s prints, the artist’s grandson William Streeton asked if there was any way the opportunity could transform into something more for QG&W. William was impressed with our dedication to print and arts education and wanted to offer even more support. He asked if we could give him a wish list to which [...]
There have been many enquiries about the technical details of Sir Arthur Streeton's zinc and copper plate posthumous prints and we find this understandable given today's broad use of the term 'limited edition prints'. People unfamiliar with printmaking can't be expected to know the details. Queenscliff Gallery & Workshop's (QG&W) view and gallery concept is simple - the print (impression) must be hand printed.
