September 17th: Kurt Pammer drove from his Toronto home to London to give a wonderful talk about his work and winning print at Satellite Project Space. This talk was part of the programming for Dundas Street Fest. This was the first project in what we hope to continue as an ongoing collaboration with Toronto's Open Studio.
Print London at Nuit Blanche 2016
Print London had a great installation on Dundas Street beside Budwieser Gardens. The theme was called Phantom Impressions and featured a 60 foot fabric path with over 50 different footprints and designs for people to try printing. However, as the sun dropped and the huge black lights and christmas light decorated tents began to glow the dark clouds overhead responded. Unfortunately right as night got into full swing the rain began. Thankfully we were able to get some great photos - even if it's more blanche than nuit. Many thanks to our volunteers who helped with the event!
Even though this is the last post for Satellite Project Space it was the first event. This jam packed month began with a kid focused styrofoam printmaking workshop for Dundas Street Fest. The swarms of children and parents set the pace for the rest of the month.
That's a Relief is a print show at Satellite Project Space exhibiting artwork from the collections of: Fanshawe College, Beal Art and Western University. The works were curated by Joscelyn Gardner and Gabriella Solti.
Take a look at our Member Gallery page to see some of the works completed. Also, some nice closeups of the Nuit Blanche tile wall in the background.
This event was epic! Over 1000 people came through the door with 260 of those making prints for our gigantic tile wall. For many this was their first time ever making a print! Huge thanks to Satellite Project Space and our many volunteers for making this event possible.
We took a guided tour of the historic “Free Press” print shop at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. Resident printer Doug Teeter demonstrated the process of printing a newsletter using original tools and techniques dating back to the 1850s. Somethings have changed a lot and others really haven’t!
It's amazing to see where so many of the fonts and terms I know from Microsoft Word originated!
