BIMPE VI exhibition


Design: Cloe Aigner, Print: “Bite your Tongue” by Jen McGowan, intaglio

Everyone is invited to the opening for The Sixth Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition (BIMPE) on Saturday, September 11th, 2010 from 6 to 9 pm. at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island, 1241 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC.
As the BIMPE site explains:

The Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition (BIMPE) is held every two years in Vancouver, British Columbia. This exhibition is a showcase for small scale works measuring no more than 15cm × 10cm, and is open to images made using all printmaking techniques from traditional line etching to contemporary digital processes.

I’m very pleased to have my work chosen along with that by numerous (about 200?!) other artists from around the world. Many of the names are known to me, a few I know personally such as the artist whose delightful print was chosen for the invitation above. As I’ve mentioned before, I rarely do small works so this year it was a timely opportunity for me to support this local biennial of prints.

This exhibition will be at the Federation Gallery until the end of September, then moves for the month of October to Dundarave Print Workshop, also located on Granville Island. In November, it travels to Edmonton’s SNAP Gallery.

UPDATE October 30th, 2013: While cleaning up dead links on old posts, I have discovered BIMPE now has its own site with pages for each biennal. Check out the fantastic PDF version of the catalogue!
