Spring has sprung and to remind us of the abundant splendour in our backyards is an exhibition at Adamstown Uniting Church titled Colours of Spring. An array of artists from the Newcastle Printmakers is showing a collection of 60 prints. Flowers tickle and blossom within the space of the church broadcasting to a whole new audience.

The drypoint technique in the printmaking process is employed by Jeanne Harrison to make aged images of cyclamens, daffodils and cosmos. Velvety edges produce a downy softness whose effect is suitable for the floral subject matter.

Simplicity of line and composition works splendidly for a screenprint titled “Radishes and Swede” by Jacquie McCoy. Solid structure of the chosen subject is achieved through hazy shadowing and strong form.

Refined ideas, wistful and iconic are explored using a combination of techniques by Pauline Tickner. Isolating a willowy subject between identical images makes possible the illusion of difference evident by exchanging negative space. A sophisticated artwork results.
