Delighted to announce that we have secured wine sponsorship from Mount Avoca wines. Nestled amongst the Pyrenees Ranges in western Victoria, Mount Avoca has grown to become one of Australia’s most exciting, independent wineries. With a Five Star Halliday-rating and a picturesque organic vineyard and olive groves, Mount Avoca continues to handcraft innovative, award-winning wines. Visit the cellar door, open 7 days a week or shop online.
Our last show prior to the winter closure opens on 8 June. Closure this year has been extended to six weeks owing to two very late cancellations of exhibitions scheduled for the mid-July re-opening. Rather be left with four galleries needing to be filled with stock room work, we were able to move the remaining exhibitions in time slots following the closure.
The gallery is now closed for the holiday season and will re-open on Wednesday 10 February 2016 with Editions (see below). A curated exhibition, we have invited 43 Victorian-based printmakers to be part of Editions 2016. Of those 43, 18 are new to the annual exhibition and 16 have never exhibited at Tacit before.

Submissions for Editions 2016 is now open. All Victorian-based printmakers can submit up to 5 works for consideration to be included in Tacit's annual print exhibition curated by Keith Lawrence.
Our preference is for new work but all submitted work should have been created in the 12-18 months preceding the opening night on 10 February 2016. Where the work is not new, it should not have been exhibited extensively around other galleries - particularly Melbourne. (Examples: work exhibited in 3-4 regional galleries but not seen in Melbourne is acceptable: work shown in one gallery in Melbourne and 2-3 regionally is acceptable: work seen in 3-4 Melbourne galleries and 2-3 regionally is not acceptable).
For the purpose of Editions, the work submitted should be relief, intaglio, lithographic or screen prints.
All works should be framed unless paper size is larger than imperial (approximately 80 x 60 cm) or the work is created not to be framed. There is no theme or size restriction - we will make the curatorial decisions based on the work submitted in creating a balanced exhibition that takes into account medium, size and subject.
All works should be for sale.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 10 February until Sunday 28 February. Bump in will take place approximately 7-10 days prior - final dates yet to be determined. A one-off total fee of $40 per artist is payable - but only if selected to exhibit.
