The John B. Aird Gallery presents The 10th Annual PRINT SHOW. The exhibition will be on view from April 30 to May 24, 2013. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, May 2, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Fifty-five printmakers from across Canada entered 115 artworks for the jurors, Joscelyn Gardner and Dale Barrett to consider for this year's exhibition. Joscelyn Gardner is an internationally respected printmaker who was awarded the Grand Prize at the 7th International Contemporary Prinmaking Biennial in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. Dale Barrett is Director of the John B. Aird Gallery. Together they reviewed and discussed all submissions, taking into consideration a wide range of ideas about and approaches to the art of printmaking. Thirty-three exceptional artworks were selected, representing the strength and diversity of contemporary printmaking.
The John B. Aird Gallery is a not-for-profit charitable organization serving the art community and the public. The “Aird”, as it’s casually known, presents exhibitions and related activities that are open to the public and presented for the purposes of study, education and the enjoyment of art. The Gallery is located in the Macdonald Block, an office tower in the heart of Queen’s Park, the seat of the Government of Ontario.
The mandate of the John B. Aird Gallery is to create awareness and enjoyment of art works by contemporary professional artists. The Gallery is truly a special place providing a nurturing atmosphere for both artist and viewer.
