October 21 Printopolis day 1

21 10 2010


It was an event packed day at Printopolis, printmaking conference, in Toronto. The six students (pictured in the last post with Marnie Blair, instructor) walked to Open Studio and then to the AGO, stopping to watch steam roller printing at OCAD, and then we walked back passed Open Studio to the Glen Gould Auditorium for the Key-note speaker, Jose Roca. He spoke about the tensions between technical and conceptual aspects of printmaking (excerpt taken directly from conference hand book). His talk was short but interesting, after which we drank wine and then took the street car back to the B&B (pictured above is the view of the front door from inside). I would have posted pictures from the day but I left my camera behind at the studio$%#*&^!!. I will be returning tomorrow to retrieve it.

I can’t wait to see Brendan Tang’s work at the Gardiner tomorrow.
