The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery's National Works on Paper (NWOP) was established in 1998 and incorporated the former Spring Festival of Drawing and the Prints Acquisitive which began in 1973.
NWOP supports and promotes contemporary Australian artists working on or with paper. This diverse exhibition provides a survey of what's happening in contemporary art across Australia today. Traditional approaches to working with paper are explored alongside works that incorporate new technologies, pushing the boundaries of the medium and expanding our appreciation of what working with and on paper can be.
NWOP is an award, a curated exhibition, a celebration of the materiality of paper, a showcase of the ambition and experimentation of artists, and a conduit for us to build our collection. MPRG presents NWOP every two years to highlight the amazing work that artists are making across the country.
This project is supported by the Mornington Peninsula Shire, the Friends of MPRG and the Ursula Hoff Foundation.
Running from Saturday 13 August to Sunday 27 November 2022.
