    Cost: Entry by donation

    Join Lois and Rina Genis for a discussion about Fred Genis’ life and work, with Grafton Regional Gallery curator, Professor Pedram Khosronejad. 

    During his forty-year career, master lithographer Fred Genis worked in the United States, Europe, and Australia, collaborating with leading artists from around the world. His working life spanned monumental eras in the 20th Century art including the American Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1960s and 1970s New York where he worked with artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Willem De Kooning, Sam Francis, John Cage, and James Rosenquist. After moving to Australia in 1979, Genis set up workshops in Sydney and the Northern Rivers, working as a printer, publisher, and teacher for three decades until his retirement in 2007. During this time, Genis worked with generations of Australian artists including John Olsen, Lloyd Rees, Tim Storrier, Judy Watson, Guan Wei, Brett Whiteley and many more. A Printer's Proof celebrates the art of lithography, the special bond formed between artist and printer, and the remarkable life and legacy of Fred Genis.
