Marking Out the Territory

Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, London – 10:00 – 18:00

Rebecca Hossack gallery will reopen with an exhibition of prints by leading practitioners from both the western and indigenous traditions of Australian art.

Many of our staff come from commercial media or regimented academic backgrounds, the thrill then is to write from a place that is neither beholden to financial interests nor academic process but has the impact and appeal of the former and the insight of the latter.

We hope that to this day Trebuchet conveys our belief that smart fun creates joy.
