Handmade prints by 31 past and present members of the Group celebrate 45 years of printmaking in the Lysnar House Studios, located behind Tairāwhiti Museum. The prints on display have been created by zinc etching, drypoint, collagraphs, solar plates, linocuts and lithographs.

Appreciation is given to three printmakers, Doreen Costello, Penny Ormerod and Phyllis Underdown who helped establish the Group in 1976. Plates and tools used in the printing processes are also on display.

An illustrated extended catalogue, ‘We can’t stop now’ relates the history of the Gisborne Printmakers’ Group and the printmaking studio in Lysnar House, and includes images of prints by the exhibiting artists. This can be purchased in the Tairāwhiti Museum shop.
