Shipwrecked Dreaming: An Exploration into Printmaking


St. Lawrence College is pleased to present a new exhibition, Shipwrecked Dreaming: An Exploration into Printmaking, on view until September 23, 2009 at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery on the Brockville campus.

This exhibition features Wendy Cain, one of Canada's best printmaker/papermakers, with her series "Shipwrecked Dreaming" in the main gallery. This series presents screen prints on handmade paper using black and white juxtaposed classical images and objects of everyday life, to create a calming trip to a world of fantasy. To illustrate several different types of printmaking there will be a video installation, as well as, the Kingston Printmakers Guild who will be exhibiting a diverse selection of works using various printing techniques. An exploration into the world of printmaking will encourage visitors to learn more about this medium and its delicate beauty.

Saturdays during the exhibition members from the Kingston Printmakers guild will be at MVS Gallery to talk about their printing techniques and answer visitor questions. Please call 613.345.0660 x363 or email for details.
