The City of Fremantle Art Collection presents an expansive survey exhibition into the digital print practice of award-winning artist and 2014 FAC Print Award Winner Gosia Wlodarczak.

Featuring Wlodarczak’s ‘process capsules’, these prints, photo collages and an animated sound drawing will be exhibited alongside the photography of Longin Sarnecki whose work visually explains Wlodarczak’s process. Drawing upon works produced over the past nine years, the exhibition will also include a new piece made in response to a Collection print by Polish/Australian printmaker Lidia Groblicka (1933-2012).

The City of Fremantle Art Collection, established in 1958, is the largest municipal collection in WA with over 1400 works. The Collection’s focus on Fremantle artists and Australian prints celebrates the enduring importance of the visual arts to Fremantle.
