The amazing SNAP print studio in Edmonton, Alberta, created a new Print Patron fundraising level this past year and commissioned me to create a print for the donors. The print sold out before I even finished printing it back in November so its no longer available but you can check it out below and stay tuned for next year’s fundraising print.
Pull, Don’t Fall
(Silkscreen, 16″ x 14″)
Super happy to be part of the Flatgrafika portfolio, organized by the excellent Robert Truszkowski. The folio was exhibited at the Hague Gallery in Regina on September 16th.
Threshold (silkscreen, 14″ x 11″)
Excited to have my work exhibited for Fresh Ink at Wonderfair during Lawrence Print Week (October 16th – 21st). The show was juried by Jeffrey Dell, an amazing silkscreen artist whose work I greatly admire. The show is up until November 5th and features an excellent lineup of contemporary printmakers. Check it out if you happen to be in Lawrence, Kansas.
The Process of Balancing (silkscreen 30″ x 22″)
Here are two new prints that I premiered at The Other Passport. Both are silkscreen on mylar.
Waiting Room (silkscreen on mylar, 28″ x 40″)
Untitled (silkscreen on mylar, 40″ x 28″)
September through October, I am exhibiting some new works alongside Jill Ho You and Marnie Blair at the Red Deer Museum Galleries. Our exhibition The Other Passport reflects on illness and its impacts. The title is based on a Susan Sontag quote from Illness as Metaphor:
Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.
I’ll also be delivering an artist talk to students at Red Deer College on September 25th.
Here are some new prints – a couple of them are portfolio prints including one that I never posted from last year. All are silkscreen on paper.
Examination Artifact II
(silkscreen, 11″ x 15″)
(silkscreen, 15″ x 11″)
(silkscreen, 15″ x 11″)
I have a print included in the 36th Bradley Print and Drawing International juried by Kathryn Polk. The exhibition opens today and runs until April 17th at four galleries in Peoria, Illinois: the Heuser Art Center and Hartmann Center Gallery, Studios on Sheridan, Prairie Center of the Arts, and the contemporary Art Center.
I am pleased to be part of Flux, opening January 5th at DC3 Art Projects in Edmonton. This exhibition is the result of the year-long research project See Me, Hear Me, Heal Me where researchers, medical practitioners and artists worked with patients who were recovering from head and neck cancers. Details on the posters below.
Brenda Malkinson and I will be exhibiting some prints at Midtowne Gallery here in Calgary with an opening on November 12th from 2:30pm to 5:30pm. Please stop by and say hi! Everyone is welcome.
