I recently returned from Quebec where I attended the opening of the Biennale Internationale d’Estampe Contemporaine de Trois-Rivières (BIECTR). I was thrilled to be selected as one of 51 artists from around the world for this edition of the biennale. I met many excellent printmakers, saw a lot of great prints, and gave a short talk about my work in French. Install shots below:
Printeresting is one of my favourite printmaking sites and I was thrilled that they recently accepted an article that I wrote about the 8th Biennial International d’Estampe Contemporain de Trois Rivieres (BIECTR). Back in November, I was invited to be part of the jury, an intensive three-day process that was an awesome opportunity to dialogue about amazing prints (in French no less) and I wanted to visit the exhibition once it was up. In June I attended the opening of the exhibition which sprawls across four venues. Its a great selection of works by some amazing artists from around the world.

I recently returned from Trois Rivieres where I served as a juror for the 8th Bienniale Internationale D’Estampe Contemporaine de Trois Rivieres. I was fortunate to be able to spend several days looking at and discussing prints from all around the world. I greatly look forward to seeing the prints in the summer when they are exhibited. I gave a talk afterwards (in French!) at the Universite de Quebec a Trois Rivieres. It was interesting to consider my ideas in another language and to connect to a different audience.
I was greatly impressed with the depth of culture in Trois Rivieres and the way that they integrate culture into the daily life of the city. I met a great many artists and visited Presse Papier (a print-based artist run center and print shop). My brain is still absorbing the depth of the experience, I know I will be back in Trois Rivieres soon!
