6th Annual Member Exhibition
November 4th to November 28th, 2014
Public Archives, Chase Exhibition Room
Halifax, NS. – Join the Nova Scotia Printmakers Association (NSPA) as they display over 100 works by members at the Nova Scotia Public Archives during the month of November.
Fine printmaking has for centuries struck a balance between advancing technologically and maintaining its traditional roots. Often used as a way of spreading news and information, printmaking has always maintained a level of craftsmanship and design.
For 2014 members of the NSPA have filled the walls of the Chase Exhibition Room with traditional etchings, woodblock, linoleum, stone lithography and collagraph prints. Book arts, solar plate etchings and collage work are among the more then 100 works on display. An official reception will be held, 1:00-3:30pm, Saturday, November 8th, 2014.
The Nova Scotia Printmakers Association (NSPA) was founded in the early 1980’s by Ed Porter, Bob Rogers and other interested printmakers who saw a need to unite the printmakers of the province. The NSPA’s membership includes both practicing professional printmakers and those with a more general interest in the printmaking media. The association has managed to pull together the printmaking interests of the isolated corners and the urban centers of the province for the benefit of both the printmakers and their ever-widening audience.
