Last week, our Print Room Manager Helen, braved the cold and headed down to Wellington for a couple of days - after a wet and windy start the sunshine did come out eventually, although remaining at a balmy 4oC for the rest of the trip!

Catching up with some of Wellington's finest gallery directors and curators, Helen was out and about checking out shows and discussing all things relevant in the land of fine art printing. Coffee catch-ups and tea galore it was great to meet with the delightful Cherry from Matchbox Studios and sit down for a pow wow with Emma from Enjoy Public Art Gallery. Touring the facilities of both Toi Poneke Art Centre and Photospace with Paora and James respectively, Helen gained useful insight into the day-to-day practices of Wellington artists. With a quick visit to see James at Page Blackie topped off by a walk on the beautiful Wellington waterfront. All in all it was a great trip - we're thoroughly looking forward to the next...
