I’m thrilled that three of my prints were selected for BIMPE VIII. The Gala Opening is at the Federation Gallery in Vancouver, Thursday September 11th. I’ll be there!
Rebecca Allaigres is the artist of the featured print, above. It’s on the cover of the catalogue and promotional material. It’s a reduction woodcut titled Cherry Top.
Here is a description of the show, taken from the BIMPE website:
BIMPE, the Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition, is a unique and exciting survey of original printmaking on a truly international scale. Works are selected by a jury of respected printmakers and arts professionals from across North America. The exhibition attracts the very best professional printmakers from across the globe.
Images and themes are diverse, techniques range from traditional to contemporary. In addition to their excellence, there is one constant: their size. The maximum image area is 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inches).
