Past UStP Exhibitions & Events

Community steamroller print event
Sunday 28 April 2019

On Sunday 28 April 2019 much fun was had as we inked and printed giant lino blocks with a road roller in the carpark at 6 Manton St Hindmarsh during our inaugural community print event.

For weeks, printmakers from around Adelaide and South Australia enthusiastically carved over 150 small lino blocks especially for us ... And we combined these small art works into one giant lino print about the suburb of Hindmarsh.

'Steamroller printing' is fantastic fun. Around the world, printmakers use old steamrollers, road rollers, cricket pitch rollers and water drums to print large-scale relief blocks, made from anything from linoleum, to salvaged plywood and the recycled floors of old gymnasiums.

You can see the Eventbrite registration here www.eventbrite.com.au/e/community-steamroller-print-event-tickets-59419516373 (for full details of the event).

Teatowels mementos from the event are available for pre-order … $30 (includes postage, no pickup).
Please click here for the teatowel-prints available and here for the order form.
Teatowels will be posted after mid-May 2019 when the ink has dried.
From late May, teatowels will be available for purchase from Pony & Cole cafe.

For further information, please email Simone.

UStP @ Bowerbird Design Market 2018

Over the weekend of 23-25 November 2018 Union St Printmakers again featured at Bowerbird Design Market. It was the perfect time to buy original, affordable art for Christmas.

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!

Collaborative Variations

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.

Artist pairings:

  • Caren Florance (ACT artist/printmaker) and Tracy Crisp (Adelaide writer)

  • Simone Tippett (SA printmaker) and Shags (ACT artist/printmaker)

  • Vicki Reynolds (SA printmaker) and Ian Tully (NSW printmaker)

  • Sonya Hender (SA printmaker) and Simone Lyon (regional SA sculptor)

  • Sandra Starkey Simon (SA printmaker) and Joy-Anne Poppy (SA textile artist)

  • Lloma Mackenzie (SA printmaker) and Heather Shimmen (Victorian printmaker)

  • Christobel Kelly (SA artist/printmaker) and Lorelei Medcalf (SA artist/printmaker)

  • James Parker (SA artist/printmaker) and Helen Carter (SA film maker)

  • Deborah Miller (SA artist/printmaker) & Reg Moore (SA glider pilot and swimmer)
