prize1 250The first open call mokuhanga exhibitiion for Australia was a great success! With thirty artists contributing their work from all over Australia, and guest Artist Mia Oo of Japan sending two works, there was a nice variety on show. The two winning works "Untitled" by Takuro Yokoo (1st Prize Awagami Paper Award) and "Red House" by Mat Paul (2nd Prize Murasaki Baren Award) were both well recieved.

Thank you very much to Awagami Papers for their generous sponsorshop of the Awagami Paper Award. The Australian Mokuhanga School contributed the Murasaki baren, as we wish to encourage artists to create more mokuhanga and develop their skills and connections to other practitioners in Australia.
