Printmakers needed!

Bimblebox Art Project

I was put onto this admirable project by my friend and fellow printmaker Jorji Gardner, and she’s told me they need more artists, so if you’re a printmaker, now’s your chance to get involved for a good cause!  The art project is supporting the Bimblebox Nature Refuge in Queensland, which is being threatened by a massive coal mining development. The 8000 hectare refuge is one of the very few large areas of intact remnant habitat remaining in the bioregion.

My contribution will be the Nankeen Night Heron, but I still haven’t seen one in the flesh, let alone in the wild, although I believe you can find them around here near Christies Creek. I have no idea yet what form of printmaking I’ll use for this project, but wood engraving seems appropriate as it’s not a brightly coloured bird.
