The Mildura BMW Australian Print Triennial is a major international art event spearheaded by The Art Vault that will bring together artists, academics, arts ambassadors and practising printmakers from Australia and overseas to engage in a celebration of art printmaking and its significance in modern Australia’s Art’s culture.
Printmaking in Mildura, since the establishment of the Art Vault, has gained a strong institutional and social base and a rapidly growing national reputation amongst Australian printmakers. A print triennial in Mildura has the potential of creating a national focus on printmaking and should with time set the agenda for printmaking in this country. It is an exciting idea which I strongly support. Professor Sasha Grishin AM, FAHA, APT Patron.
