This special project is finally coming to fruition next week!
An exhibition of prints titled ‘In Two Places’ is being held simultaneously at galleries in London, Ontario and St. George, Barbados from 15 June – 2 July, 2022. Organized by Print London and The Brighton Storeroom, Barbados, this exhibition of original editioned works in a wide variety of print media aims to explore commonalities between Print London’s member artists and printmakers from Barbados, as they negotiate their printmaking practices between two spaces. A 50-page colour exhibition catalogue with essays by artist, writer/curator, and Professor of Visual Arts at Western University, Patrick Mahon, and Canadian / Barbadian writer and art historian, Allison Thompson (PhD.) will be launched at the opening reception in both locations on 16 June. A public panel discussion featuring the catalogue contributors and participating artists will be held online on 25 June.
