Waiprint 2023

Exhibition: 23 September through 14 October, Wednesday – Saturday, 11.30-3.00

Closing party: Sunday, 15 October, 1.30-3.00

WAIPRINT is an annual exhibition of works by Waikato Society of Arts printmakers. WAIPRINT 2023 marks our first time in blue, WSA’s new gallery at 3 Anzac Parade.

This year’s guest artist is Marty Vreede, printmaker, typographer and award-winning educator from Whanganui (and also, originally, Hamilton). His part of the exhibition – Type Scape: A River Conversation – shows the development of ‘Te Awa Reo’, a font design informed by the distinctive landscape of the Whanganui region. In Type Scape he will exhibit woodcuts, drawings, and the work leading to a font design that marks his response to the conversation between Te Awa Tupu o Whanganui me Papatuanuku.


Still on the font front, Graham Judd of Inkiana Press in Auckland will run a one-day letterpress workshop on Saturday, 7 October. Six students will work with wooden type, producing two prints during the day. For an insight into the beguiling world of letterpress, visit www.inkianapress.co.nz. $80
