Ottawa-Gatineau Printmakers at Nuit Blanche September 20

Hundreds of people visited us at the Ottawa School of Art at Nuit Blanche!

Over 100 prints were made in the evening. Visitors who were unable to pick up their prints can pick them up at the Ottawa School of Art front desk reception during office hours until the 1st of October (please check www.artottawa.ca for their hours).

Many people contributed to making this a successful and memorable evening. The OSA lent us their studio, press and staff. Tina Petrovicz organized the event. Deidre Hierlihy and Jeff Stellick made linocuts for visitors who inked and printed them on the press. Members and friends of the Connective volunteered their time at Nuit Blanche – Jenny Waterman, Carol Steinberg, Emma Vogt, Sonia Chippindale, Rod Restivo, Madeline Rousseau, Shirley Yik, Katie Argyle, Tina Petrovicz, Marc Lavoie and Deidre Hierlihy. 

Thanks to all of you and the hundreds of enthusiastic visitors!

We are looking forward to a great print exhibition coming up where 4 of our printmakers celebrate food culture! Here are the details! (French follows)

August 20 to October 12, 2014
Espace Pierre-Debain
Opening night: September 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Everyone is invited, admission is free.

Inspired by the chefs who gave the art of the table its prestige, the Graphein collective borrows from the kitchen for its latest exhibition: The Banquet. When it comes to engraving, we cannot ignore the contribution of artists like niello-goldsmith Maso Finiguerra, who in 1452 discovered how to pull a proof from a silver plate that he had engraved for the church of St. John in Florence. Or that of Danish artist Henrick Boegh, who founded Grafisk Eksperimentarium in 1997, workshops for the dissemination of non-toxic printmaking techniques. Thanks to these and other trailblazers, contemporary artists have access to numerous recipes for developing their creative work. This exhibition brings together four artists with four different techniques, exploring the theme of the kitchen, a place for creation and production where surprises abound in the final concoctions. From container to content, come rediscover the world of multiple art.

Artists: Manon Boulet, Louise Lépine, Denise Tremblay and Deidre Hierlihy

Du 20 août au 12 octobre 2014
Espace Pierre-Debain
Vernissage exceptionnellement le 3 septembre de 18 h à 20 h. Le grand public est invité. Entrée libre en tout temps.

Inspiré par les chefs qui ont su donner ses lettres de noblesse à l’art de la table, le collectif Graphein passe par la cuisine pour vous présenter sa plus récente exposition : Le Banquet. En gravure, nous ne saurions ignorer l’apport d’artistes comme Maso Finiguerra, orfèvre nielleur qui trouva en 1452 le moyen de tirer l’épreuve d’une plaque d’argent qu’il avait gravée pour l’église Saint-Jean de Florence. Encore moins celui de l’artiste danois Henrick Boegh, fondateur de l’Experimentarium pour les arts imprimés en 1997, ateliers visant la diffusion des techniques de gravure non toxique. Grâce à eux et à bien d’autres, de nombreuses recettes s’offrent aux artistes contemporains dans la mise en valeur de leur création. Cette exposition regroupe quatre artistes : quatre techniques différentes qui explorent le thème de la cuisine, espace de création et de production où ce que l’on y mijote cache bien des surprises. Du contenu au contenant, venez redécouvrir l’art du multiple!

Artistes : Manon Boulet, Louise Lépine, Denise Tremblay et Deidre Hierlihy


L’échange pour l’année du cheval/ Year of the Horse Exchange

 

Avec beaucoup d’anticipation les membres se sont réunis à l’EAO pour échanger les estampes crées pour l’année du cheval. La galerie Proof de Toronto a remis à nos membres et aux étudiants en gravure de l’EAO presque soixante –quinze estampes en échange des oeuvres envoyés à Proof lors de l’ exposition annuel sur le thème du calendrier chinois.Ute Gerbrandt a prêté son assistance et son chapeau au tirage dirigé par Rob Hinchley. Les membres ont eu la chance de choisir le même nombre d’estampes qu’ils avaient contribute à Proof. Les estampes qui provenaient de la région d’Ottawa ont été distribués par la GalerieProof aux participants d’outre-mer et des autres régions du Canada.

Notre invite d’honneur, Ramiro Ricardo,un graviste cubain a présenté un choix de ses linographies de grande taille en couleures vibrantes.

Les participants ont apprécié cet échange et ont hâte de poursuivre la tradition l’an prochain. 2015 sera l’année de la chèvre des bois.

There was a buzz of excitement as members gathered on May 22 for the exchange of prints for the Year of the Horse. Approximately 75 prints were sent from Proof Gallery to the Printmakers in return for a similar number of prints we had sent for their annual “Year of…” exhibition. Rob Hinchley, assisted by Ute Gerbrandt with her reliable top hat, organized and managed the draw of names for the numerous prints. A chance at choosing one or more prints depended on the number of prints each artist submitted. The Ottawa based prints were distributed by Proof Gallery to other contributing printmakers in Canada or abroad.

A special guest was Cuban printmaker Ramiro Ricardo who made a brief presentation of his large and vibrant linocut prints.

It was an enjoyable exchange and we’re looking forward to continue this tradition next year! 2015 will be the year of the goat.
