Printmaking Demo with Joanne Salé
Joanne Salé is an artist in residence at the Caetani House for the month of September. In this demo Joanne will be pulling prints from a lino block that she carved this year. It is one of a series of four prints in a new body of work collectively titled Dark Water. The series was started during her stay at the Kasahara Gabriola Trust artist residency, where Joanne got to spend a lot of time staring out at the Salish Sea. She will have all the blocks and an example of the print pulled from each on view at the demo. You’ll see Joanne doing things like inking the block, setting the block and paper into the press, the actual printing, and the exciting moment of pulling the print off the block. Final copies of the prints will be in an exhibition at Lake Country Art Gallery, opening on October 1st. Joanne earned her BFA from UBC-Okanagan in 2005, where she worked in sculpture, drawing, etching, and painting. Joanne has had solo exhibitions and been included in group exhibitions throughout BC. She has completed numerous artist residencies. Registration is not required but space is limited so we do suggest booking a spot.
This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
