Territorians will have the opportunity next week to own the same limited edition etching that was presented to delegates at this year’s APEC forum in Sydney.

Northern Editions Gallery’s annual sale and exhibition will open on Monday, 12 November and will include some of the few remaining etchings of Tim Djandjomerr’s Brolga, the gift to APEC delegates.

Titled Treasures in Ink, the sale and exhibition will offer an eclectic range of limited edition prints by well-known and emerging artists from communities such as Balgo, Bidyadanga, Kakadu and Tiwi Islands.

Manager of Northern Editions, Emma Fowler-Thomason said the annual event was eagerly anticipated by Territory art-lovers and Christmas shoppers alike.

‘The exhibition showcases many of the recent prints produced at Northern Editions alongside some treasured favourites from previous years,’ she said.

More than 20 artists will feature in the exhibition including Dorothy Napangardi, Paddy Fordham Wainburranga, Elizabeth Nyumi, Timothy Cook, Raelene Kerinauia, Donald Moko, Jan Billycan, Marina Strocchi and Wayne Eager.

While more than 40 prints would be on exhibition, many other original art works could be viewed in display folders, Ms Fowler-Thomason said.  Prices start from $70 with discounts of up to 30% on selected works.  The sale will end on 17 December.

Northern Editions, Charles Darwin University’s printmaking studio, has been supporting Indigenous printmaking since 1993 and is the longest established producer, publisher and retailer of limited edition fine art prints in northern Australia. Many of these works have found their way into major art galleries, museums and corporate and private collections around the world.

The Northern Editions Gallery is open to the public from 10am to 5pm weekdays and is located in Building 33, at CDU’s Casuarina campus.
