A Furious Hunger
And they thought, Where do we go from here?
And they thought, where do we go from here? is a 40th anniversary exhibition of Malaspina Printmakers’ founders: Gary Bowden, Chris Brady, Bob Evermon, Monique Fouquet, Michael Jolliffe, Deborah Koenker, and Renée Van Halm. In 1975, these seven artists, all associated with the Vancouver School of Art (Emily Carr University of Art and Design), gathered at the Mido Gallery on Main Street to create a new society that would allow them to apply for funds for an international print exhibition. 40 years later, Malaspina Printmakers is showing their work from that time period, along with newer work. Please join them for the opening celebration on Thursday, November 12, 2015, from 6pm – 9pm. For more information, visit www.malaspinaprintmakers.com.

This exhibition features Active and Signature member artists of the Federation and all artworks are available for sale. For more information visit www.artists.ca.
