BIMPE XI

BIMPE stands for Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition. The eleventh edition of that excellent show was due to take place in 2020, but you know what else happened then. The deadline for prints to be mailed in was in March 2020 and I had sent in my three entries by then. Normally BIMPE would have… Continue reading BIMPE XI

In the fall or early winter, I was happily surprised to receive a cheque for one of my entries into the Ottawa School of Art Miniature Print Biennale Exhibition. The print called The Conductor had sold. Then a week or two ago--I lose sight of time during the pandemic--I received a copy of the exhibition's… Continue reading Exhibition News

Anna Torma at The Textile Museum

There is a small, excellent museum in Toronto called the Textile Museum of Canada. It re-opened recently and I went there on the weekend to see the work of one of my favourite artists, Anna Torma. She does large scale hand embroidered pieces that are spectacular. Her exhibition is called Permanent Danger after a piece… Continue reading Anna Torma at The Textile Museum

Since then, I've been working on two more prints that I'll post when they're further developed. In the meantime, here's some photos of two shows I went to… Continue reading Brian Jungen, The Moon & Printmaking Show
