The Pacific Perimeter Print Exchange:
This innovative exchange of contemporary prints was first initiated in 2011–12 as 'Vie de Pacifique–Pacific Life' by Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura while she was president of Impress Printmakers Studio, Brisbane. It was implemented to give printmakers in the Asia Pacific area an opportunity to share their work with an international audience and have a voice on issues that face the region. The second Pacific Perimeter Print Exchange, 'Vie du Pacifique II', was curated and coordinated by Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura and Jennifer Stuerzl from Migaloo Press in 2016.
Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura and Migaloo Press generously donated 'Vie de Pacifique–Pacific Life' and 'Vie du Pacifique II' to the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Print Collection in April 2017.
Both print series have been shown internationally and are now available to view locally, until 22 July 2017.
