Betty Jean Drummond and Marijke Nap were members of Dundarave Print Workshop for many years. Their enthusiasm for printmaking was infectious. Both experimented with their craft in response to the world around them. Betty Jean found joy in nature and the environment creating colourful, richly textured works in collagraphs and etchings. Marijke’s work speaks to social inequalities by exploration through digital and etched collages. Please join us in honouring the memory and the work of these two influential and important print artists.

Dundarave is excited to be hosting BIMPE X this year.
BIMPE is a showcase for small scale works measuring no more than 15cm × 10cm (4 x 6 inches). All printmaking techniques from traditional line etching to contemporary digital processes are represented. A catalogue will be available for sale.
For more information visit New Leaf Editions.
Please drop by for this exciting 3-person show.
Three printmakers explore the conceptual and aesthetic strategies of layering in their current studio practices. The prints reference ideas, materials and colour. In these processes they either erase and obscure or reveal new interpretations.
All Members Summer Show
June 25 – Sept 16
Throughout the summer Dundarave printmakers will be exhibiting new and small format original prints. We invite you to stop in to see this diverse range of work including etchings, monotypes, relief prints, collagraphs and more. As pieces are sold, new works go up to create an ever changing exhibition.
Courses in August and September
Intro to Etching with a British Twist
$50 for supplies
Course description : This course will give you an introduction to etching with Zinc using a hard ball ground. The course is led by Maya U Schueller-Elmes, a printmaker from London, UK with over 10 years printmaking and teaching experience. She will bring the skills she has learnt through community arts engagement and teaching experience gained through being part of the printmaking technician team at London’s Central St Martin’s school of art to this course – introducing students to a set of techniques which are more traditionally used in the UK. As a result of this course, you will gain a good understanding of using zinc plates and hard ground etching techniques – from preparing the plate, applying hard ball ground, making marks, and using nitric acid safely through to preparing your paper and pulling your print using an etching press.
Skill level: beginner / refresher / suitable for printmakers at any level who are curious about use of hard ball ground as an alternative to liquid hard ground.

With Shadow Guides, printmaker and painter Maria Tratt continues to explore the theme of personal memory through the creation of imaged contexts of origin. Building on the tradition of daemons, guardian spirits that manifest as external physical aspects of a person’s character, these new works combine etching, aquatint, collagraph and monotype techniques to develop a formal layering that hints at the possibility of multiple and simultaneous existences.
