Now in its 44th year, the Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award returns with a spectacular new showcase of prints and artist’s books from a selection of established, emerging and cross-disciplinary artists from across the country. In 2019, Australia’s premier printmaking prize continues to present works which celebrate traditional printmaking alongside those which look towards the future of the medium.
