Beastie and the Beaut: old tales, new skins
Margaret Genever and Laurel McKenzie are exhibiting a suite of collaborative printworks at Artroom @ Vivo, 49 Williams Esplanade, Palm Cove, Queensland. One of the pleasures of printmaking is its collaborative nature, whether sharing a press or a process. The works for Beastie and the Beaut: old tales, new skins, evolved out of mutual admiration between Laurel McKenzie and Margaret Genever for each other's work, and a desire to leverage a shared interest in drawing and its translation into print. In this body of work, each image is created by both artists, in partnership. The exhibition launches on 27 March and continues to 18 May 2015. Artroom @ Vivo is open daily, 7am to 11pm.
