We support printmakers through networking, exhibitions, skill sharing and life-long learning opportunities. Professional artists and those just beginning their creative journey are encouraged in experimentation and excellence in printmaking.

PAWA aims to promote the production, appreciation, enjoyment and collection of prints throughout Western Australia.  Fine art printmaking includes traditional techniques such as etching, engraving, lithography, linocuts, and screen printing as well as contemporary forms of hand printing which can include digital elements.

"We promote and encourage experimentation in the production of prints.”

Established in 1974 by a group of enthusiastic printmakers,  PAWA coordinates at least two exhibitions annually for members as well as skill sharing sessions, workshops, visiting speakers, visits to print collections and networking opportunities.

With our base at Tresillian Arts Centre, Nedlands, Perth exhibitions, networking and skill sharing are a large part of PAWA’s activities.  Being a part of the PAWA community is a great way for printmakers in WA to emerge or remain current and flourish in their art practice.
