Meet Artspace Mackay Gallery Director Tracey Heathwood and see her present a selection of her favourite artists’ books from the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection. Artspace Mackay houses almost 600 artists’ books from this collection and every two years hosts a national artists’ book prize, the Libris Awards, which attracts the very best artists’ books being created today. Tracey has a long association with the gallery and its collection of artists’ books and is herself a practicing printmaker. She will share personal insights into some of her favourite artists and artists’ books.
