I’ve reworked a series of silkscreen prints from last year. Here are a couple of them:
The 37th Bradley Print and Drawing International opened this past week. This exhibition of prints and drawings is spread across 7 different venues in Peoria, Illinois. My print can be found at the Peoria Art Guild until April 12th. The shipping was a true ordeal for this one – my print was shipped to the wrong gallery in a different state and the shipping company couldn’t sort out where it was (even though I gave them the exact address…). I ended up having to pay a different company to pick it up. But it’s there!
I have work in the Southern Printmaking Biennale VIII at the University of North Georgia this month.
The same print has also made its way to Hawaii for the 2018 Pacific States Biennial North American Print Biennial in Hilo. My print will be on display at the East Hawaii Cultural Centre through November (and then the UH Hilo Library until the end of the year).
Print(ed) Matter is currently on view at Gallery 2 in Grand Forks, BC. This is a collaborative book project between Calgary printmakers and writers that was previously exhibited at Loft 112 in Calgary. An image of my book displayed in Calgary is below.
My first print of 2018 is a silkscreen produced for the Going to Ground portfolio at SGCI 2018. Looking forward to the upcoming conference!
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.
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.
Here are two new prints that I premiered at The Other Passport. Both are silkscreen on mylar.
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.
