I'm a little late with this post, but I've been distracted with my travel plans to Paraguay (Yeay!!!...more about that later). One of my prints (Leaving Behind) was accepted to the 23rd Parkside National Small Print Exhibition in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The juror was John Hitchcock who teaches at the University of Madison. If you want more information about the show, check out the press release here or go to the exhibition website.
Since I moved to the US, I've come across so many opportunities to apply to exhibitions and network with other printmakers. I must say, to me it seems there is a much stronger and closer knit printmaking community all over the country here than I experienced in Canada. Perhaps I was just unaware of more connections and opportunities back in Winnipeg? Well, for now I enjoy making more prints and trying to show my work more widely and when I move back to Winnipeg some day I'll see what I can do about the networking in Canada.
