The 150 member Central Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand with members from Kerikeri to Dunedin will exhibit recent work selected by Wanganui-based Master Printer and tutor Rowan Gardiner. In the Frame: Selected Prints will feature 39 prints displayed in presentation frames owned by the Council to facilitate exhibition by members and guest artists. All work will be for sale unframed; Conservation Framing of purchased prints will be available through Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts. Members of the Central Print Council utilise a variety of techniques to create and produce their art. The most common techniques are etching, engraving, silk screen, monoprint, lithography, wood cut, lino cut, intaglio and letter press printing. Less common techniques include wood engraving, vitreograph, collograph, blind intaglio, aquatint, siligraph and gravure. Print-makers being innovative artists may also have some new techniques or combinations which may be seen in this exhibition if chosen by the selector. In the Frame opens on Saturday 1st August and will continue through 26th August; an official opening and reception for the artists will be held on Saturday 8th August from 1.30pm. The public is cordially invited to meet the artists in attendance on that day and to learn more about the Central Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand networks.

Selector Rowan Gardiner is an accomplished printmaker and tutor who has taught for many years at the Quay School of the Arts, formerly a department of the Wanganui Regional Polytechnic, now part of Ucol (Universal College of Learning, Palmerston North). Rowan also teaches in the Quay School of the Arts Summer Print School.

The Central Print Council of Aotearoa New Zealand (CPCANZ) is an incorporated society which provides a structure for the support of affiliated printmaking artists in the Central Districts Region and throughout New Zealand. Among the activities of the Council are providing access for its members to printmaking equipment, specialist facilities and educational opportunities; providing national and international support and opportunities for members and printmaking artists. It also provides professional development, research and dissemination of information to all members. Membership in CPCANZ includes Annual Members Show, newsletters/mailings, workshops and invitations to special events. The Council also promotes school-based and community learning programmes.

A previous show by members of the Print Council was Prints Petite, an exhibition of small work by members of the Print Council which was hosted by Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts in April 2013 in conjunction with the 6th International Compact Prints exhibition, a travelling exhibition developed by Umbrella Studios Contemporary Arts, Townsville, North Queensland, Australia. Individual members of the Print Council have also shown their work at the Taylor-Jensen Gallery in a number of solo and small group exhibitions. A work by former Manawatu print artist Jacqueline Aust now living in Auckland was selected by Te Manawa for inclusion in its art collection from the exhibition Crossing Boundaries: Five Australian and Five New Zealand Artists Challenging Traditional Printmaking Structures which was first shown in February 2014 at Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts. This exhibition was exhibited later in that year in Sydney.
