As Union St Printmakers, Simone Tippett regularly organises exhibitions and group events.
UStP @ Bowerbird Design Market, 23-25 November 2018
All prints were locally made by UStP artists, hand-pulled prints from hand-made plates. Not a digital print in sight!
Also, no commission - all funds were paid directly to the artist who made the print.
… So if you missed out on something special, that you are keen to buy as a gift, please email Simone and she will put you on touch with the artist concerned. If there are prints left after the weekend, you can purchase direct from the artist. But be warned, as the prints are all limited edition originals, they can sell out!

And you can see us as we appeared on Today Tonight on Thursday 21 November - www.todaytonightadelaide.com.au/stories/meet-the-makers - fast forward to 2’15” to see some letterpress, screenprinting and lino printing in action.

Past UStP Exhibitions
11 November until 20 December 2018 at Gallery 1855. Click here for the exhibition invitation and for Mei Sheong Wong’s review in the Imprint blog - 'Review of Collaborative Variations'.
An exhibition about the possibilities of collaborating. Adelaide artists have paired with regional South Australian and interstate artists to make collaborative works, against the odds of distance, time constraints, travel and very busy lives. Collaborative Variations is about the nature and form of the relationships that grow from making work together (often despite great distances), with each set of works evidencing the integrity, intimacy and friendship of each unique collaboration, and each pair of artists finding their own new ways to make work, despite all odds. This lovely exhibition shows that collaborations can be many and varied... an inspiration.
