|SUBJECT:||Grenfell PSA: Come to Printopolis? A Public Printmaking Event at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College|
|DATE:||March 18, 2009|
Printmaking students at Grenfell College believe that art is the heart and soul of every community. To that end, they are hosting an all ages public printmaking event on March 27, 4:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m., at the Fine Arts Building atrium and print studio.
Everyone is invited to come and participate or just observe the students employing and demonstrating a variety of traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques including: etching, drypoint, photogravure, woodcut, linocut, stone lithography, monotype, water-based silkscreen and digital approaches. The students will be giving away their printed artworks while supplies last. As well, works by the student artists will be displayed to exemplify the vitality of printmaking today. There will be light snacks and refreshments and music. Ultimately, the students hope to foster the vitality of printmaking and to promote understanding, awareness of, and participation in making prints by students and community members.
