This is an opportunity for printmakers from all over the world to connect with eachother by exhibiting their print interpretation of the zodiac sign of the Chinese New Year. In previous years artists from China, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong and the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Quebec and Ontario have participated in this exhibition and print exchange. For some artists this is their 8th year of participation and they are collecting some wonderful prints and printmaking contacts around the world. Printmakers of all ages are encouraged to participate and we have university, college and high school students as well as professional printmakers involved.
The exhibition will run from January 25 to February 13, 2009 at PROOF Studio Gallery in the Distillery District in Toronto, Canada. The work will travel to a number of venues in Ontario, including the Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, the Ottawa School of Art, and to the Muskoka Place Gallery in Port Carling!
Join us for Chinese snacks and fortune cookies and bring your family and friends to celebrate the New Year!
