Visit Ground Zero Printmakers in their unique printmaking studio on historic Fisgard Street in China town as part of the festival. Check out the many other venues at Integrate Arts by going to: integratearts.ca
It’s a great opportunity to visit a working printmaking studio, meet the artists, and buy original art at very reasonable prices. GZ members will be on hand with portfolios bursting with mini prints. Buying fine art mini prints is an economical way to start collecting original art or add to your collection. And, you’ll support local artists!
Lunar Study 6 is one of the mini prints I’ll be offering for sale.
Mini Prints have a long history as a standard for international print biennials. Many Ground Zero members and other local artists participate in these shows in Tokyo, Romania, France, Spain, and Vancouver. It really is a window on the world of art. In the past, communist block artists were able to send the tiny prints somewhat secretly by post out of the country.
Vancouver’s Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition (BIMPE) is held every two years. This exhibition is a showcase for small scale works measuring no more than 15cm × 10cm, and is open to images made using all printmaking techniques from traditional line etching to contemporary digital processes.
Some of the prints from my Bliss limited edition that were shown at BIMPE will be for sale at Ground Zero.
Opening at Ground Zero Printmakers Society is Friday August 24 from 6 t0 9 pm.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
