Making a Good First Impression
June 24 – September 25, 2011

Making a Good First Impression is a spirited exploration of printmaking processes. Using unconventional approaches that range from etching with gunpowder to producing plates with a steamroller, master printmaker Patrick Bulas and recent MFA graduate, Jordan Schwab, take aim at a medium often fixated on process and technique. A selection of prints will be exhibited, accompanied by support material including sketches, plates and documentation of the various processes.

Patrick Bulas has an active studio practice and applies his trade at the University of Saskatchewan as a printmaking studio technician and sessional instructor. Jordan Schwab is a recent graduate of the University of Saskatchewan MFA program and is developing a body of work that considers “how things are made.”
