The Flyway Print Exchange - an update

In June 2013, we received an invitation (call for entries) to join a printmaking exchange initiative related to shorebirds conservation.

Here's a Facebook page for those interested to follow development of this event..

The Flyway Print Exchange is an art project that links 20 artists from 9 different countries along the East-Asian Australasian Flyway.
The Flyway Print Exchange is an exchange between artists living in different countries along the East-Asian Australasian Flyway, the flight path travelled by Australia’s migratory shorebirds twice annually between their breeding and non-breeding grounds.

Twenty artists, from nine of the twenty-two Flyway countries, will create prints inspired by the idea of the Flyway. One print from each edition will then be posted, unprotected, along the Flyway and back, echoing the birds’ journey, adding the impression of migration and distance to the works and referencing the weathering of the migrating birds’ plumage. The prints, weathered and pristine, will be exhibited together in Melbourne in 2014.
....The Artists
The twenty artists who are participating in the Flyway Print Exchange range from recent graduates and emerging artists, to academics and established artists of long standing. The artists and the countries they represent are:
