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.

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.
Seven prints from my recent series of plexiglass prints – The Everyday Liminal – are currently showing at the U of A Museums Galleries at Enterprise Square in Edmonton as part of the group show A Little Bit of Infinity. The exhibition features print works from around the world to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Print Study Centre. The exhibition is up until January 28th with an opening on September 30th.
I recently completed two new silkscreen prints on paper.
Unstable Lines (silkscreen 30″ x 22″)
The Process of Balancing (silkscreen 30″ x 22″)
My work is again appearing in this large, print biennial in Portugal. Check out the Douro Biennial Site for information about this exhibition curated by Nuno Canelas.
