Thank you to CAM volunteer James McArdle for the photos.

It's always a joy to be amongst the eucalypts and take to the mud brick stage at the annual Baldessin Press Printmakers' Picnic. Thank you to Tess Edwards for always making us feel so welcome, and to Silvi Glattauer for the fab photos.
Where it all began. An early incarnation of the Press Gang, featuring musical printmakers recruited by Martin King, to perform at the Australian Print Workshop's Impressions opening. Way back in 2014, before the aprons and the songbooks. From left to right: Janice Murray (bass), Simon White (guitar), Jazmina Cininas (vocals), Julie Forrester (vocals), Graeme Drendel (guitar, vocals), Martin King (guitar, vocals), Raymond Carter (keyboard).
