Umbrella is delighted to host the Print Commission 2023 from the The Print Council of Australia (PCA). The annual exhibition features contemporary Australian artists who have each been commissioned to create an edition of significant new prints. 

The Print Commission continues to foster the creation of new work in print media and the development of Australian printmaking. It also provides Australia’s best opportunity to start and grow a museum quality collection of contemporary works on paper, and is an important fundraiser for the PCA.

Major public institutions and private collectors across the country and internationally subscribe to the Print Commission to build their collections, and all PCA members can purchase prints at discounted rates. The prints will be available to purchase from PCA's website. The prints will also be toured and displayed in additional galleries in Australia.  

Print Commission 2023 is on display alongside Time and Space: 2023 Umbrella Members' Exhibition and First Nations Artists' Prints from Far North Queensland - Canopy Arts.
