“Printmaking is taking on the contemporary art world, in capital cities around the globe. Here in Ottawa, it has been left out of the art scene until recently. Over the last couple of years, a group of art students from the OSA, have started using printmaking as their main medium of contemporary art creation.
This group of young artists have decided to push printmaking and their comfort zone by embracing a medium that is not as common to the artistic community in this city. This group who apply similar techniques, but completely different themes, will be showing for the first time at Gallery Studio Sixty Six. As the curator and a printmaker myself, it is a pleasure to see this group of young artists presenting their contemporary approach to printmaking in the Nation’s capital.”
