SUDDENLY it's the Australian Print Triennial weekend and i haven't blogged since's been full on and it's not over yet. so many great print-makers in town from sydney, melbourne, all over.  great sessions, inspiring speakers, a good cross section of makers, gallery owners, academics - and the whole program has run seamlessly.

i've just been driving in and leaving my car, jumping on the bus provided and going where it takes me, all the sessions are consecutive so no decisions necessary.  just sit back and enjoy :0)  photos to come - i've got my moon boot-free foot up on a saturday night and i'm going to watch fargo
