This exhibition is part of the second Kulisiewicz International Print Triennial in Warsaw, IMPRINT 2011
October 14–23, 2011
Contemporary Canadian printmaking has been exhibited several times in Poland in the past few years. Not until the City of Northern Lights exhibition, however, has the Warsaw community had a chance to discover the phenomenon so commonly identified with the works of artists from Western Canada. The recognition enjoyed by the school in Edmonton is greatly attributable to Professor Walter Jule, who in the early seventies changed a little printmaking center at the University of Alberta into an international platform for exchanging ideas on printmaking and the media culture. Today, two generations of teachers who are alumni of the university share their knowledge on printmaking with the new generations of students. Liz Ingram and Sean Caulfield are recognized artists whose works have been awarded at international print competitions multiple times.
We are also going to exhibit the unforgettable works of Tracy Templeton, Daniella Schlueter, Karen Dugas, and Davida Kidd, widely recognized in Poland.
