We recently had the priviledge of printing a set of beautiful images
for an international art project featuring 20 artists from 9 different
The concept of this project is focused around the Flyway route that
5,000,000 birds take twice a year from New Zealand to Alaska, passing
through 22 countries along their way. Artists from 9 of these countries
have collaborated in creating a collection of limited edition prints,
using a variety of mediums, that are all inspired by the path travelled.
One of each of the print editions was also posted along the flyway
unprotected. These weathered prints, which feature postmarks, tears, and
other travel marks, will be displayed next to the pristine original
This group of work will be exhibited in two different spaces, The
Flyway Print Exchange Exhibition at No Vacancy Project Space in
Melbourne and Shorebirds at The Space Theatre Foyer as part of the
OzAsia Festival in Adelaide. The Flyway Print Exchange features the
limited edition pristine prints alongside the weathered originals,
whereas Shorebirds features the limited edition pristine prints
alongside printed copies of the weathered prints.
images that will be shown at the Shorebirds Exhibition were printed on
our most ecologically friendly rag paper, Hahnemuhle Bamboo which has a
warm tone and creates a beautiful rich print.
If you are in Melbourne or Adelaide make sure you set away an
afternoon to take a look at these great exhibitions. All proceeds from
print sales are donated by the artists towards BirdLife Australia’s
shorebird research programs. For more information on each exhibition
