For the Love of Printmaking:
Two Influential Local Printmakers
Jan 23 – Feb 24, 2019
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.
